Dead Sea (Jordan) holidays

The Dead Sea is one of the most unique places on earth. Situated at 400 metres below sea level, the Dead Sea (Yum Ha Melach in Hebrew) is 75 kilometres long, ranges from 6 to 16 kilometres wide and has no outlet. The high salt content makes any plant and animal life impossible. The famously high concentration of salt has nothing to do with it being below sea level, but is caused by the high evaporation rate, which has, over the years, led to the build up of salts.
