The Dead Sea-A Spiritual and Lively Destination

By Cody Subscribe to RSS | January 19th 2012 | Views:

"When I was a boy the Dead Sea was only sick." What a funny quote isn't it? But jokes apart, I think it is one of the wonders of nature. Can you imagine floating in water just like that? Oh yes! It is very much possible here at Dead Sea. It is the lowest possible point on earth and is roughly 1,300 feet below the sea level. The temperature here soars and it is extremely dry. Due to a very high level of evaporation and no outflow possible, the water in the Dead Sea generates a number of raw chemicals. These chemicals are used for producing a number of medicines. These chemicals are extracted and exported all over the world and used in the field of medicine, agriculture and Industry.

This sea is fed by the Jordan River and the reason why one can float on the waters of the Dead Sea is because of the high concentration of minerals in the water. This causes the person to effortlessly float. The air here is extremely dry and the temperature can go up to 86 degrees in winter and 104 degrees during summer. You can expect visitors flocking to this place during all the seasons of the year and there is one important reason why people visit this place. Apart from the fact that floating on water can be a wonderful experience, the waters here are also of great medicinal value. Yes, it is true. People with skin problems such as psoriasis and other diseases such as arthritis have found immense relief by using the natural resources of Dead Sea.

One reason why Dead Sea has rich deposits of chemicals is that once the waters from the Jordan River reach the sea, they are land blocked. They have no means of flowing elsewhere after that. So their only means of escape is through evaporation and by doing which they leave behind rich deposits of chemicals that used to produce the finest products. In case you have any cuts or bruises on your skin, then let me warn you that the salty waters are going to give you a very stinging sensation because of the presence of these chemicals. To the east of Dead Sea are mountains and there are rolling hills of Jerusalem to the west which give the sea an extreme sense of beauty and grace. Though it is a very peaceful and calm place to visit, it is believed that once upon a time, it was home to five biblical cities namely Sodom, Gomorrah, Adman, Zebouin and Zoar.

You should also know that all the fun at Dead Sea is not just limited to mud and water. For thousands of years, it has been attracting visitors all over the world and because of its beauty and grace it has become the one stop destination of spiritual and health & wellness tourism. The roads are well constructed and with a lot of decent hotels with spa and fitness facilities available, it is the perfect destination to visit. For low budget travelers, Amman tourist Beach offers swimming pools and changing rooms at reasonable rates. Did you know that the Dead Sea is actually shrinking? Millions of years ago, the Jordan River, Dead Sea and Wadi Arabah were covered by the waters of the Mediterranean Sea. Later the land between the rift valley and the Mediterranean Sea rose to such an extent that water could no longer flow and bay became a lake. If you plan on visiting this exotic place this vacation, make sure that your home is well secured before you leave. You could actually use help from security providers such as ADT Home Security Systems. With year round sunny skies and dry air, Dead Sea is one place you don't want to miss.
