Imagine yourself at the lowest point on earth... this is how fascinating the experience is of visiting the Dead Sea. The Dead Sea is not only the lowest point on earth, some 400 me­ters below sea level, and not only the most dramatic and moving land­scape in the world, but it also pos­sesses a historical legacy of its own. It is believed to be the site of five biblical cities: Sodom, Gomorrah, Admah, Zebouin and Zoar. Deep in the Jordan Valley and 55 km southeast of Amman, Jordan, the Dead Sea is one of the most spectac­ular natural and spiritual landscapes in the whole world. As the name suggests, the sea is re­ally "dead," devoid of all kinds of life due to its extremely high content of salts and minerals. And because the salt content is four times that of most world's oceans, you can float in the Dead Sea without even try­ing, which makes swimming there a truly unique experience not to be missed: the only place in the world where you can recline on the water to read a newspaper. Seaside facilities include modern ho­tels with therapeutic clinics ideal for medical treatments, a soothing mud massage, or a relaxing float in the salty water for anyone, even if you cannot swim. You will float automatically. And everyone can take a little of the Dead Sea home with them when they leave. Its intense salinity and generous store of minerals have made Dead Sea prod­ucts of mud and bath salts popular nat­ural beauty aids marketed worldwide. The Dead Seas water contains more than 35 different types of miner­als that are essential for the health and care of the body skin includ­ing Magnesium, Calcium, Potas­sium, Bromine, Sulfur, and Jodine. They are well known for relieving pains and sufferings caused by ar­thritis, rheumatism, psoriasis, ecze­ma, headache and foot-ache, while nourishing and softening the skin. Jordan offers guaranteed sunshine for eight months of the year; a base of powerful, unique cultural attractions such as Peta, Jerash, and many others together with a wide range of very different, of­ten stunning natural environments that are easily accessible and vir­tually undiscovered by the tour­ism industry.The Dead Sea & The Jordan Valley
