Amman Aqaba Dead Sea Jerash Petra Wadi Rum

 

Dead Sea is 65 kilometers long and from 6 to 16 kilometers wide. It is fed by the Jordan River, but it has no outlet. As its name suggests, the Dead Sea is entirely devoid of plant and animal life. This is due to an extremely high content of salt and other minerals, 350 grams of salt per kilogram of water, as compared to about 40 grams in the world’s oceans. This concentration is caused by a rapid rate of evaporation. These natural elements give the water of the Dead Sea certain curative properties, recognized since the days of Herod the Great over 2000 years ago.
