travel to and from Masada, w/o guided tour  (1 Answer)

We would like to travel to and from Masada from Jeruselum in March 2012. Many tours offer a one day bus tour taking the cable car up to Masada then spending some time at the dead sea. We would like to do an overnight so that we could climb Masada instead of taking the cable car. Does anyone know buses to and from Jeruselum and transport between Masada and the Dead sea so that we can do all this w/o being grouped with other who just take the cable car?

"Cheap way to get to Masada from Jerusalem"  (1 Answer)

Hi guys!

I need desperatedly help! This Sunday (12/06/2011) I'm attending to a magnificent concert of Andrea Bocelli which will be held at the foot of the Mt. Masada right beside the Dead Sea. I really don't want to miss it. My problem is that the concert is at 22:00 so there are no more buses to get there or to come back to Jerusalem. What do you recomend? I don't want to spend 300 NIS in paying a taxi. Does anybody know a cheap way to get there and to come back? I really need help because I'm a volunteer at Israel thus I don't have so much money to spend in a taxi of 300 NIS. Really hope somebody could help me. It's urgent because is the concert is day after tomorrow!!!
Thanks in advance.

Travel to the Dead Sea area  (7 Answers)

I am planning to visit the Dead Sea region when I visit Israel at the end of May. I have three questions about this that travel books and web sites that I have read don't answer:

1) If I rent a car and drive along route 1 and route 90 to Masada, is it safe? Is it just highway through open area or do I pass through hostile areas? I will be travelling alone during the day.

2) What is there to see at Qumran? I really want to maximize my time in the area. Can I drop in and see the settlement and caves in an hour or so? Is it worth stopping?

3) If I rent a car, I would be interested in driving to Arad and seeing the light and sound show. How long does it take to drive to Arad from Masada (I will be staying at the Masada hostel)? What time does the show start?

In case it's important, I will be leaving Jerusalem Thursday early afternoon and driving on to Eilat from Masada Friday late afternoon.

Thanks for any advice!

Lost on my way to Masada. How to get there by car?  (3 Answers)

Tried to reach Masada in a rental car yesterday by turning to unsealed road at "- Masada 4x4" sign at road #31 on my way from Jerusalem to Ein Bokek. The road was marked with small blue and white paint marks, but the problem was that there were intersections and no clear direction which way is to Masada, just one direction was marked black and the other marked blue - the same at any intersection. It started to get dark so I decided not to try all of the roads.

Is there a way to get to Masada at this time of the year? As I understand the cable system is not working from November to March.

The place where I turned from the road #31:
