The Jordan Rift Valley is a dramatic, beautiful landscape. The Dead Sea is over 400 meters (1,312 feet) below sea level, the lowest point on the face of the earth. This vast stretch of water receives a number of incoming rivers, including the River Jordan. Once the waters reach the Dead Sea they are land-locked and have nowhere to go, so they evaporate, leaving behind a dense, rich, cocktail of salts and minerals that supply industry, agriculture and medicine with some of its finest products.
The Jordan Valley is believed to have been home to five Biblical cities: Sodom, Gomorrah, Adman, Zebouin and Zoar (Bela).
The Dead Sea has evolved into a major hub of both religious and health & wellness tourism in the region.
The leading attraction at the Dead Sea is the warm, soothing, super salty water very rich with different minerals. This water has attracted visitors since ancient times, including King Herod the Great and the beautiful Egyptian Queen, Cleopatra. All of whom have luxuriated in the Dead Sea’s rich, black, stimulating mud and floated effortlessly on their backs with the gently diffused rays of the Jordanian sun.
