The Dead Sea has fascinated people for many centuries; some have been drawn by the practical applications of its unique chemistry, so Dead Sea bitumen was used by the Ancient Egyptians in mummification, the potash has been used for fertilizers and the curative properties of the water have long been acknowledged. Its position as the lowest point on the Earth’s surface, at 422 metres below sea level, its year-round sunny and dry climate, and the health benefits claimed for its waters are what draw the modern visitor. There are several hotels lining the northern Jordanian shore of the lake and they provide a great place to spend a relaxing few days for those wanting something less lively than the seaside town of Aqaba.
