The Natural Wonders of the Dead Sea, Israel

The Dead Sea, Located about an hour east of Jerusalem, beyond the sea level hills of the Judaean Desert is the lowest point on earth. The Dead Sea is not actually a sea, but rather a large lake that borders Israel to the west and Jordan to the east. Remarkably, it is over 1,400 feet below sea level. On this Dead Sea road trip I was accompanied by a fellow from tour operator in Israel.

Our first stop was at the northern end of the lake at a private beach which does require a fee but provides shaded spots, fresh water showers, a snack bar, and an area full of Dead Sea mud to detoxify you.”This is the most bizarre and glorious experience. I mean I am not holding any air in my lungs and I’m just totally floating.

This is awesome! This is so extraordinary!” After getting cleaned up, we hopped back in the car and headed toward the southern end of the lake to get a different vantage point. Along the way there were signs of life in this inhospitable land would periodically reveal itself, like this Date Farm. I was really struck by the stunning shoreline and brilliant color of the lake the earth was terraced toward the water almost like rings of a tree indicating the age of the lake and it’s receding water level well that’s a look at the Dead Sea on the Israeli side of the lake. Until next time, we’ll be on the road.

This enjoyable trip is unforgettable as all the accommodation provided by Israel tour Operator really made me satisfied. If you are planning a trip to Israel for religious or holy land tour, I highly recommend picking a tour package offered by tour operator in Israel. They will guide you and give you amazing accommodation during the trip.
