Perched high atop a majestic plateau overlooking the Dead Sea, Masada National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site renowned for its rich history and breathtaking views. While the ancient fortress itself is a sight to behold, it's the hiking trail leading to its summit that truly captures the essence of this iconic site. The Snake Path, a winding trail carved into the mountainside, offers hikers a challenging yet rewarding ascent. As you ascend, you'll be treated to sweeping views of the desert below, making the effort well worth it. For those seeking a less strenuous option, the cable car offers a quicker route to the top, where you can explore the ruins and soak in the breathtaking scenery.

Don't forget to take a refreshing dip in one of Ein Gedi's natural pools to cool off after a day of hiking.

For panoramic views that will take your breath away, head to Mount Arbel in the Galilee region of northern Israel.
