Massada Cable car – Closed January 13-27

The Cable Car to Masada National Park will be closed for 2 weeks – January 13–27, 2019

After 20 years in operation, the cable car at Masada requires replacement of all of its electronic systems.

This work will take place at the site between January 13 and January 27, 2019, during which time the cable car will be closed to visitors.

When the cable car is closed, the Snake Path, from the Dead Sea side of Masada, will remain open for ascent and descent. Visitors can also reach Masada from the west, via the city of Arad and the Roman ramp. Ascent via the ramp takes between 10 and 25 minutes and is suitable for a wide variety of visitors. There will be a richer service center on the western side to provide visitors the opportunity for a brief rest before their ascent and after their descent.
