Places to visit in ישראל. Languages: en, ru

The Dead Sea, viewed from the cliffs above, presents an awe-inspiring tableau that speaks volumes about its geological and biological narrative. The luxurious hotels that line its shores are a stark contrast to the natural, mineral-rich waters and the scattered salt formations that emerge from its depths. These salt islands and causeways are the product of the sea's unique evaporation process, which leaves behind dense salt deposits. The Dead Sea's hypersaline environment is inhospitable to most life forms, yet certain bacteria and microbial fungi thrive, contributing to the water's distinctive color and texture. This landscape, shaped by millennia of geological activity, stands as a natural wonder, drawing visitors from around the globe to its otherworldly beauty and therapeutic waters.

Your day hike along the Bokek Stream promises to be enriching and exciting. Starting from Tsuk Tamrur, a name that testifies to British oil exploration attempts in the 1930s, you will proceed towards Bokek Fortress near the Dead Sea. Along the way, you'll encounter stunning landscapes and learn many stories, including the region's geological past. This journey offers insights into human activities and natural phenomena, such as the Syrian-African Rift, which led to the formation of the Dead Sea Valley.

As the sun sets behind the mountains in the evening, you'll descend into the Dead Sea Valley. This part of the route is awe-inspiring due to its dramatic elevation drop of about four hundred meters. The view from the observation deck is breathtaking, especially during twilight.
