Dead Sea and Masada 1 day from Jerusalem

The Dead Sea is located at the lowest point on Earth in the South of Israel. There is no life in the Dead Sea due to its high salt content which is about 33 percent. The waters of the Dead Sea are said to be very therapeutic for all sorts of skin ailments, because of the high mineral content in the water.
Masada resides on a plateau in the middle of the desert. King Herod was the first to come and build 2 palaces for himself. It is known for the Jews residing here and how the Romans with fifteen thousand troops conquered Masada. They did it by building a ramp that was 375 feet from bedrock stones, and it still took them years to overpower the Jews.
