Amazing trail discover the beduin life ....

I just returned from Israel and hiking this trail was on my bucket list. I had a difficult time convincing my group leader that I was trained and had prepared well to climb Masada. He tried to get me to ride the cable car up and hike down, which I refused this option. Hiking down is much more difficult and dangerous for me. I’m 62 yrs young and its too hard on my hips and knees! It was breathtaking with views of the Dead Sea that are spectacular. This hike would be grueling in the summer heat, and the worst part for me was it is totally sun exposed with no shade. I took my worship flags with me and I flagged all the way up Masada, praying for the peace of Israel and protection for the Jews. I’m grateful for the opportunity. I will definitely hike it again when I return!

Current favorite trail I've done. I went, mistakenly, at midday which made it that much harder, but the ruins at the top make it very worthwhile. Took the tram down.

Jun 17, 2017 - The Hula Valley is an agricultural region in northern Israel. It is a major stopover for birds migrating along the Syrian-African Rift Valley between Africa, Europe, and Asia. An estimated 500 million migrating birds now pass through the Hula Valley every year. In the summer, there aren't nearly as many species around as the Spring/Fall, but this also means that the tourists are minimal. We had the place pretty much to ourselves and had a great time photographing many new (to us) species.

I did this hike 2 years ago on a spur the moment decision. I was waiting in line to go up the tram and 2 of my friends decided they were going to hike it so I decided to join them. I had never hiked any kind of mountain previously. I would say that at this time I was not in the best shape and I struggled a lot with this climb. I completed it and was so proud of myself. I will be returning in 4 months and am hoping to do this again. I am in much better shape now than I was then.

The hike was hard and the heat was about 102 but it was so worth it. I'd do it again in a heart beat. The views, the culture, there's nothing like it.

Truly a spectacular hike site for views and for culture. The hike isn't terribly long, but it is rather vertical, so young children are certainly discouraged and no pets. The top is completely open so if you're going in the summer (even arriving for sunrise) please be aware it is very warm and be sure to bring water. There are place on top to refill them. Highly recommended if you have the time.
