Israel Day 5 - Masada - Part 2

As the cable car began its ascent to the fortress, we had an excellent aerial view of the remains of three of the Roman army camps that were constructed around the fortress during the siege, and the remains of the wall they built surrounding the fortress.

These are the best preserved Roman siege and army camp layouts in the world.

As we ascended we could see earlier morning visitors descending via the snake path.

As you get off the cable car the view from the top is stunning.

So, we had reached the top of Masada by cable car and then began to explore this historic fortress.
