Introducing The Dead Sea

At an elevation of 400m below sea level, the Dead Sea shoreline is the lowest bit of dry real estate in the world. After the obligatory float, don't miss the ruins at Masada, which is probably Israel's most enigmatic attraction. Though not as well frequented by travellers, the hiking tracks and springs of Ein Gedi National Park also merit some exploration.
