If you are planning a trip to Israel or Jordan, the Dead Sea is a place you do not want to miss!
The Dead Sea, known in Hebrew as Yam Ha-Melakh, which means the Sea of Salt, is included in the final list of candidates for the World’s 7 Natural Wonders! It is actually a salt lake, situated in the Great Syria-African Rift, between Israel and Jordan, and surrounded by the stunning landscape of the Negev Desert. The Dead Sea surface and shores are at the lowest point on the surface of the earth (!) – 430.5 metres (1,412 ft) below sea level. It is called the Dead Sea because plants and animals cannot live in its water due to a very high salinity, which is 10 times as salty as the ocean!
As a result of its high salinity, the Dead Sea is also famous for its health and healing properties, and for the fact that anyone can float naturally in its water without putting any effort.
Due to its unique features, the Dead Sea has attracted visitors for thousands of years. It was one of the world’s first health resorts, for Herod the Great, and it has been the supplier of a wide variety of products, like fertilizers, cosmetic sachets, and more…
