Set up a fabulous day of touring exactly the way you like it: Pick the trail of your choice - either hiking up the snake path or relaxing in the cable car - to climb this fascinating site. Add in a visit to the Qumran Caves (the famous site where the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered), explore the natural beauty of the Ein-Gedi reserve and/or stroll down for a dip in the famous Dead Sea.
