The place with the lowest altitude is located between Israel and Jordan and it is called... the Dead Sea. On its beaches, the level reaches 417 meters below sea level .... Yes, this place will certainly be one of the first places completely covered by water in case the Global Warming theory turns into reality. So you'd better hurry, especially if you have not learned to swim yet. That is because the Dead Sea is the saltiest sea in the world, containing 10 times more NaCl (sodium chloride) than any other water in the world.
Due to its natural properties, the Dead Sea is an important tourist center of Israel and Jordan. From skin treatments to the pleasure of massage with minerals, the coastline here has developed intensely, attracting tourists from everywhere.
