A sea below the sea level, The Dead Sea is 400 meters below zero. Why the attribute dead? Because of the high salinity, life is not supported. Besides that: a breathtaking view with amazing healing properties.If you find yourself on holiday in Israel, you have to take time and visit this beautiful place. The Dead Sea is the lowest point on earth: the quantity of water that evaporates is greater than the water that flows in. This is the reason why the water has the highest salinity in the world 340 grams per liter.
On the Israel shores you can find beautiful resorts with organized beaches and therapy centers (Neve Zohar, Ein Bokek). The mud in the sea is filled with minerals beneficial for the skin and joints. Also, a lot of cosmetics use this mud for it’s powers.
Another interesting thing is that the region has a lot of monasteries and it is an important place for Christian pilgrims. There are important caves around where ancient scrolls have been found and they represent a traditional pilgrimage site. After visiting the area, pilgrims go further and visit the river Jordan.
