The Dead Sea is located in the Judean Desert at the lowest place on Earth, 430 meters below sea level. It is a hypersaline lake approximately 9.6 times more salty than the ocean; the high levels of salt make the waters of the Dead Sea uninhabitable to any living thing hence its name “Dead” Sea. The Dead Sea offers visitors on a day tour the opportunity to benefit from its many natural health benefits. The sunlight at the Dead Sea has fewer harmful rays; the air is oxygen-rich and low in allergens; the water is soothing for the skin, aches and pains and Dead Sea mud can be used as a natural face mask! Dead Sea water and mud literally extract toxins from the body and rejuvenate the skin. It is especially good for those who suffer from skin conditions. In fact the Dead Sea environment has been proved to give visitors an overall feeling of well-being.
