Dead Sea - Israel Tours

The lowest point in any land mass on earth, the Dead Sea sites 417 meters below sea level

There are some monumental sites that simply must be visited on Holy Land tours – the Dead Sea is one such site! Many Christians desire to one day see the Dead Sea for themselves. The lowest point in any land mass on earth, the Dead Sea sites 417 meters below sea level! Visitors are often surprised to learn that the amount of water that evaporates from the Dead Sea is actually greater than the volume that flows into it, which is why the Dead Sea has the highest salt concentration on the planet at 340 grams per liter! As you probably already know, the Dead Sea received its name because its salty concentration prevents any life from actually dwelling in its depths. However, the salt that prevents life from staying in its waters also provides amazing health benefits and is regarded by ailing visitors for its healing properties. Also referred to as the “lowest health spa in the world”, the Dead Sea’s salt is produced in the south for industry and in the north for the tourists and health uses. Visitors on Israel tours learn that the factor that makes the Dead Sea’s water so beneficial and unique is its unparalleled combination of sales and minerals.

This national treasure lies on the western shore and has many designated beaches and areas for bathing.
