Dead Sea & Jordan Valley

The Dead Sea is not only the lowest point on earth, some 400 meters below sea level, and not only the most dramatic and moving landscapes in the world, but it also possesses a historical legacy of its own. It is believed to be the site offive biblical cities: Sodom, Gomorrah, Admah, Zebouin and Zoar .As the name suggests, the sea is really “dead,” devoid of all kinds of lifedue to its extremely high content of salts and minerals. Its waters are about nine times as salty as the ocean and contain rich amounts of magnesium, potassium, calcium and various chlorides. It is this quality that gives the Dead Sea its cherished and highly demanded the rapeutic value.
Seaside facilities include a modern hotel with a therapeutic clinic, a restaurant and a bathing complex, ideal for medical treatment, a soothing mud massage, or a relaxing float in the salty water for anyone-and we mean anyone- since there is no risk of anyone sinking in the salty waters of the sea. And everyone can take a little of the Dead Sea home with them when they leave.
