Are you ready for a journey to the lowest point on Earth of sightseeing, learning, pampering, fun, and tranquility? If so, then this full-day guided tour is a must-do.
Your journey begins from seeing the Inn of the Good Samaritan and stopping at the sign indicating that you are below sea level. Admire the clear view of Jericho in the distance, where Jesus cured the blind and where Joshua and his troops caused the great city walls to fall. At 400 meters below sea level, discover what it's like to reach the lowest point on Earth, the Dead Sea. Experience the therapeutic powers of this area and the sea itself like thousands of people, including Cleopatra, have known. Being further from the sun than any other point on Earth, it's safe to enjoy the sun's positive qualities.
The air is dry and non-allergenic, meaning that your body is enjoying the benefits of the Dead Sea internally as you inhale the revitalizing air. Then there is the black mud, nature's natural facial and body mask. Indulge by smothering some of this mineral-rich mud onto your skin and benefit from its therapeutic qualities. Float in the sea and learn how it was named the "Dead" Sea plus how minerals like magnesium are used in medicines. Marvel at the cobalt blue water and the Moab Mountains in the distance. On your journey back, you'll pass by the Qumran caves, where the 2000-year-old Dead Sea Scrolls were found to complete your day.
