The Jordan Rift Valley is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful locations to shut out the rest of the world. It’s dramatic appeal increases by what is rightly known as the eighth wonder of the world – the Dead Sea. Over 400 m (1,312 ft.) below sea level, the Dead Sea is the lowest point on earth and has a number of rivers emptying themselves into it. Since the Dead Sea is land-locked the water evaporates, leaving behind just rich salts.
But there’s more to this gorgeous locale than that. So if you are looking for the ultimate leisure trip with your beau or even your family, here’s why you must visit the unexplored yet awesome Dead Sea for relaxed, rejuvenating and refreshing rendezvous.
Situated amidst the mountains and hills of Jerusalem, the Dead Sea helps you disconnect from the world outside. The calm sea has an almost other-worldly beauty with a touch of serenity. So if you are planning to escape the madness of your chaotic life, here’s where you will find peace.
A stunning landscape
If you are a nature lover, Jordan’s got the most spectacular natural and spiritual landscape on the east coast of the Dead Sea. The hills overlooking Jerusalem and the sparsely populated city are such a refreshing break from the monotony.
Luxury at its best
A luxurious trip awaits you at the Dead Sea with great infrastructure, high-end hotels, rejuvenating spa facilities and fitness centres that are set alongside archaeological and spiritual discoveries—enough to entice any modern traveller.
What really makes the Dead Sea a destination that’s different from every other is the warm, soothing and super salty water, which is 10 times saltier than normal sea water. The high salinity means you can actually float without fear of drowning, while you soak up the water’s healthy minerals.
A therapeutic mud wrap
The rich, black stimulating mud in the Dead Sea is full of chloride salts of magnesium, sodium, potassium, bromine and others. It is known to have many healing properties and is used extensively in beauty products that you can purchase to bring home too. P.S. Don’t forget to enjoy a mud wrap while at the Dead Sea.
The Amman touristic beach situated right next to the Dead Sea promises a joyous experience with swimming pools and changing rooms that are offered at a budget-friendly fee to let you make the most of your time and enjoy this beautiful location to the fullest.
