The trail captured in the photo snakes down from a vantage point at sea level down to the hotels dotting the shoreline of the Dead Sea, descending through a rugged terrain marked by a significant drop in elevation. Starting from the viewpoint, where the elevation is at zero in relation to sea level, the trail descends steeply to reach the resorts at the Dead Sea's edge, approximately 350 meters below sea level. To the right of the cliffs, hidden from view, lies the channel

The winding path in this image leads from a viewing platform at sea level, descending steeply towards the luxury hotels near the Dead Sea, marking a significant altitude drop to about 350 meters below sea level. The trail etches through the arid landscape, where to the right, beyond the cliffs, the course of Nahal Bokek stream is hidden from sight, having left the vicinity of the large seasonal waterfall. This descent not only showcases the stark contrasts of the region's topography but also the dramatic changes in elevation from the viewing platform down to the mineral-rich waters of the Dead Sea.
