The Dead Sea is one of the most spectacular natural places in the world. It is the lowest body of water on earth, the lowest point on earth and the world's richest source of natural salts. As you descend to 400 meters below sea level, the mountains tower above, looking fierce and unforgiving. The salt content is four times that of most worlds' oceans; you can float in the Dead Sea without even trying, which makes swimming here a truly unique experience not to be missed. The Dead Sea is said to contain many healing properties and you can reach down and pick up some of the soft, sulphurous black mud and cover your body like a mud pack! Many travellers remark just how good their skin feels after a quick dip in its waters. Stepping into the Dead Sea is a sensation like no other and definitely one of those life experiences that you should not miss out on.
