Background

The Dead Sea, is known as the lowest place on Earth and saltiest lake on Earth with a salt concentration that fluctuates around 31.5% and shores that are located 429 meters below sea level. The dead sea’s salty waters have many health benefits and have been soothing joint aches and skin ailments for millennia, in addition to being a destination to relax and have fun in astoundingly beautiful surroundings. The Dead Sea isn’t mentioned in the Bible, but must have been a central point in the Biblical landscape as a natural barrier and landmark. Today the mineral filled lake is a well known tourist destination with well developed facilities for visitors of all kinds in the district of Ein Bokek. Kibbutz Ein Gedi has a more limited capacity, but offers an unparalleled Nature Reserve and hiking possibilities. Between the two  destinations sits Masada, a historical landmark,which is surrounded by great trails.
