Have a Shimmy like Salome at Mukawir
Mukawir (ancient Machaerus), a short drive off the King's Highway, is said to be where John the Baptist lost his head after Salome danced for King Herod. There are only scant remains of Herod the Great's castle on the conical mountaintop, but you're really here for the yawning views of rippling hills that stretch down to the Dead Sea and out to the West Bank beyond.
