Climb if you have the energy but it is very hot at Dead Sea - so we used cable car. The fortress is extraordinary and guides / explanatory boards at strategic locations are useful to explain the history, palaces, Roman siege etc. Do not miss...More
Our group of 6 (age range 12 - 55) walked the snake path at 5.40am in order to be at the top for dawn at 6.40am. It was challenging, beautiful and most definitely worth it. Watching the sky gradually turn rosy red as you get...More

It seems very unlikely that the site would completely close for either archeological work or for maintenance. It may close due to dangerous weather conditions, but that is a day by day variable that you wouldn’t be able to determine until you’re at the site. Is a good idea to have a secondary option, but I wouldn’t worry about it.
