image description
Upon embarking on a rigorous and dangerous climb, tourists can reach the top of Masada by a small number of pathways. Spanning around 200,000 square yards, the top of Masada is completely flat. Today, the top still contains the ruins of Herod’s palace built there many centuries ago.
