One of the world’s most amazing place, the Jordan Rift Valley is a dramatic, beautiful landscape, which at the Dead Sea, is approximately 1,312 feet below sea level, making it the lowest point on the face of the earth. Many tributaries and other rivers flow towards the Dead Sea; however, once the waters reach the Dead Sea, they are land-locked with nowhere to go, leaving behind rich deposits of salts and minerals that supply industry, agriculture and medicine with some of its finest products. The Dead Sea is flanked by mountains in the east and the large, rolling hills of Jerusalem to the west. And although this area is sparsely populated and serenely quiet now, the area was once home to five Biblical cities: Sodom, Gomorrah, Adman, Zebouin and Zoar.
As such a captivating and spiritual landscape, the Jordanian east coast of the Dead Sea has evolved into a major hub of both religious and health & wellness tourism in the region. Plenty of good roads, excellent hotels with spa and fitness facilities, as well as archaeological and spiritual discoveries make this region as enticing to today’s international visitors as it was to kings, emperors, traders, prophets and pilgrims in antiquity.
