The Dead Sea is a natural wonder which is situated in the center of the great Syrian-African rift valley fault between Israel and the Kingdom of Jordan. The Dead Sea is actually a big inland lake 76 KM long, up to 18 KM wide and it is 400 meters deep at the deepest point. It is the lowest point on dry land in the world (417 under sea level).
Another record held by the Dead Sea is having the highest salt concentration of any of the world's seas, salt lakes or any stretch of water.
The high salinity of the waters in the Dead Sea prevents the existance of life in the water, hence its name. The name "Dead Sea" for the Hebrew "Yam Hamelach" (Salt Sea) The Dead Sea is drying quickly.
