    "Dead Sea is as old as the Jordan rift vally, part of the well known Syrian – African rift. Some say it is 60000 years old, some say less some say more, but this doesn't affect the uniqueness of the location and environment. It is a closed lake, was fed through centuries by the Jordan River and minor streams and springs from the eastern and western side, until 1964, when the Jordan River was diverted to lake tiberias by Israel to supply the Israeli population with fresh water. Hence over 700 million cubic meters of water annually stopped nourishing this eternal lake. Due to that reason and other minor reasons, level of the

    Dead Sea started receding in an annual rate that exceeds 80cm. This represents a serious ecological threat to the lake and the surroundings. The government of Jordan is working hard on realizing a project, with international help, to provide the Dead Sea with controlled volumes of water from the Red Sea through an artificial canal. This ambitious project could help tangibly in saving the Dead Sea environment.

    The Dead Sea lies 413 meters below sea level (2002), (396 meters 1980) considered the lowest point on earth. In an arid environment, less than 70ml of annual rain, 330 sunny days a year, with low humidity that never exceeds 60% evaporation is so high all over the year that caused the Dead Sea water to become the saltiest in the world" Experience the feeling of floating on water for yourself in this truly unique place.

    • Masada
      Masada (a romanisation of the Hebrew מצדה, Metzada, from מצודה, metzuda, "fortress") is the name for a site of ancient palaces and fortifications in the South District of Israel on top of an isolated rock plateau, or large mesa, on the eastern edge of the Judean Desert overlooking the Dead Sea. Masada became famous for its attributed mythic significance in the First Jewish-Roman War (also known as the Great Jewish Revolt) when a siege of the fortress by troops of the Roman Empire led to a mass suicide of the site's Jewish Sicarii fugitives when defeat became imminent. Today, Masada is a very popular tourist destination.

      Geography:The cliffs on the east edge of Masada are about 1,300 feet high and the cliffs on the west are about 300 feet high; the natural approaches to the cliff top are very difficult. The top of the plateau is flat and rhomboid-shaped, about 1,800 by 900 feet. There was a case mate wall around the top of the plateau totaling 4,300 feet long and 12 foot thick with many towers, and the fortress included storehouses, barracks, an armory, the palace, and cisterns that were refilled by rainwater. Three narrow, winding paths led from below to fortified gates.

    • Kerak
      Karak is a small town named after a crusaders castle perched high on a hill top.

      The city itself stems from biblical times, when it was known as Kir or Moab. As it lay along an important trade route between Damascus and Egypt (and still does, as a matter of fact) the place was of significant importance to pretty much every army that ever marched these lands.

      The castle was built by the crusaders in 1142. It was later used as a stronghold by the Mamluks and Ottoman Turks.

      The city lies along the King's Highway, and makes for a nice side excursion on the way from Amman to Petra or Aqaba.

    • Qasr Al-Abed

       

      Qasr Al Abad is a must visit tourist attraction site in Amman . The building located in the Western side of Amman is popular and among the few Pre-Roman structures that still exist in Jordan. It is attractive and small sized. Little information is available regarding when the structure was constructed, it is believed to have been built by Hyrcanus, a member of a famous and powerful Jewish Tobiad family to serve as a palace. It is speculated to have been built between 187 and 175 BC. The structure has undergone renovations and modifications even though it is not complete. The site that was built using large blocks, is spectacular and attracts visitors from all over the globe. Its notable features are beautifully carvings of animals on the outer walls, a panther fountain on the ground floor, a lioness together with cubs on the upper floor and eagles that have been eroded on the corners of the building. At the entrance, you find a gatekeeper who opens the gate leading to a small museum within the structure and the entrance leading to the main museum. You can also ask for a key for the gates at a shop located in close proximity to the gate.

        Dead Sea is the lowest point on earth, and the richest source of natural salts. To reach this spot, and its 30 minutes drive from Amman. The leading attraction at the Dead Sea is the warm, super salty water, that's why its called (dead sea) because there is no life in it. and its rich in chloride salts of magnesium, sodium, potassium, bromine and several others. you can float in the Dead Sea without even trying to swim, which makes swimming a truly unique experience not to be missed. its the only place in the world where you can recline on the water to read a newspaper. Also don't forget the black mud, you can use it as a facial mask or to wrap your body, it has a lot of benefits like toning, relieving muscle pain, moisturising and restoring a healthy rosy glow to the skin and improving its elasticity. In summer the climate is really hot and burning there which is good to get a nice tanning. Situated on the Dead Sea main road there is a lot of good hotels to stay, and two kilometres after the hotels area . (Amman Touristic Beach) offers swimming pools and changing rooms for low budget travellers and locals for minimal fees.
