Arrow Explore Dead Sea ..you won't drown in it :)

Yes my Dear Fellow Xossipian,

Even if you jump into the Lake known as sea you will not get drown, and can float and read your favourite Novel, even if you are a non swimmer.

Certainly everyone would like to experience such feel Isn't it

I have experienced it myself. The feel is out of the world.

Just imagine you are staying at a five star hotel, you walk through the lobby go to the exterior and are greeted by a splashing pool you get the urge to dive in and explore it but you hold yourself ahhh! I don't know swimming, never mind just cross the pool and you land up on a beach with sand welcoming you and infront of your eyes is a vast sea and bang opposite at one corner you are seeing the flag of Israel. Oh no you are not into Israel

You are into Jordan. Yes! One of the most spectacular place in Jordan is Dead Sea which is between Jordan and Israel. And you can also see Palestine from there.

The Dead Sea, also known as the Salt Sea, is a salt lake bordering Jordan to the east and Israel and the West Bank to the west. It’s a hypersaline lake that is truly one of Earth’s unique places. Below you will find ten interesting facts of this fascinating place.

Some Facts about Dead Sea


1. The surface and shores of the Dead Sea are 423 metres (1,388 ft) below sea level, making it Earth’s lowest elevation on land.


2. The Dead Sea is 377 m (1,237 ft) deep, making it the deepest hypersaline lake in the world. A hypersaline lake is a landlocked body of water that contains significant concentrations of sodium chloride or other mineral salts, with saline levels surpassing that of ocean water.

3. With 33.7% salinity, the Dead Sea is one of the world’s saltiest bodies of water. Although Lake Assal (Djibouti), Garabogazköl and some hypersaline lakes of the McMurdo Dry Valleys in Antarctica (such as Don Juan Pond) have reported higher salinities.


4. The Dead Sea’s unusually high salt concentration means that people can easily float in the Dead Sea due to natural buoyancy. In this respect the Dead Sea is similar to the Great Salt Lake in Utah in the United States.

5. The Dead Sea is roughly 8.6 times saltier than the ocean. This salinity makes for a harsh environment in which animals cannot flourish (hence its name). The high salinity prevents macroscopic aquatic organisms such as fish and aquatic plants from living in it, though minuscule quantities of bacteria and microbial fungi are present.

6. The Dead Sea is 67 kilometres (42 mi) long and 18 kilometres (11 mi) wide at its widest point. It lies in the Jordan Rift Valley and its main tributary is the Jordan River.

7. The Dead Sea area has become a major center for health research and treatment for several reasons. The mineral content of the water, the very low content of pollens and other allergens in the atmosphere, the reduced ultraviolet component of solar radiation, and the higher atmospheric pressure at this great depth each have specific health effects.

8. Biblically, the Dead Sea was a place of refuge for King David. 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, from balms for Egyptian mummification to potash for fertilizers.

9. An unusual feature of the Dead Sea is its discharge of asphalt. From deep seeps, the Dead Sea constantly spits up small pebbles and blocks of the black substance. Asphalt coated figurines and bitumen coated Neolithic skulls from archaeological sites have been found. Egyptian mummification processes used asphalt imported from the Dead Sea region.


10. The world’s lowest road, Highway 90, runs along the Israeli and West Bank shores of the Dead Sea at 393 m (1,289 ft) below sea level.

There are two routes one is via Amman the capital of Jordan and the other is via Aqaba the major Town on Red Sea shore. Most of International flights land at Amman. from there go to Petra the place of one of the 7 wonders of World - Treasury, and then move on to Dead Sea. You have good 4* and 5* hotels at Dead Sea few have private beaches at Dead Sea.
