Your overnight stop is  in a hotel at the Dead Sea, the lowest point on earth, some 400 meters below sea level. Due to an extremely high content of salts and minerals, as the name suggests the sea is devoid of life. However, it is these very minerals that give the Dead Sea its renowned curative powers, recognized for over 2,000 years.
