Qumran Caves Israel

August 13th, 2010

After our visit to the Oasis of Engedi, or Ein Gedi, we drove further north along the Dead Sea and visited the Qumran National Park which is located at about 20 km east of Jerusalem and a little less than 40 km north of Ein Gedi so you could make a day trip to the Qumran Caves if you're staying in Jerusalem as well.

Since we already stayed in Jerusalem and were touring the Dead Sea we continued our way up from Masada in the south, Ein Gedi on its west shore and eventually Qumrun to its north west.

The Qumrun Caves can be found near the Kibbutz settlement of Kalia, also written Kalya, and are ususally visited by tour or at least in the company of a local guide.

It was here, on the dry plateau of the Qumran Caves that the famous Dead Sea Scrolls were found, an ancient collection of documents which included texts from the Hebrew Bible and were found in different caves of the Qumran National Park, named like this after this historical find.
