Israel Goes to the Dead Sea
Israel has long known about the dead sea salt and how it brings so much to both its people and its economy. Now, the world is getting to know all about this mineral-rich wonderland even better. The Dead Sea has been an archaeological treasure trove for historians and archaeologists for decades now. In fact, millions of tourists visit this ancient site each year, many of them to find their particular minerals.
The Dead Sea is also known as the saltiest salt water body on earth, with an average density of more than seven pounds per cubic meter. The Dead Sea Salt is also known as the largest source of trace minerals like potassium, magnesium and calcium in the world. The mineral content is so high that over six hundred and fifty different minerals can be found in a typical one-square mile section of Dead Sea waters.
Israel has been enjoying the benefits of Dead Sea salt for years now. Today, it is being recognized as one of the premier tourist destinations in the world. The mineral content is second only to that of Switzerland. Israel’s tourism minister, Isaac Lapidos, stated back in 2021 that the mineral content of the water is the highest in the world. Tourists are flocking to get a look at this mineral rich place that has proven itself as a top tourist attraction in Israel.
This area has many attractions that make it such a favorite tourist spot. It has beautiful beaches, lush vegetation, modern architecture and biblical sites. At the same time, the area is also known for its ancient history. At one time, the region was the home of King David and his palaces. It has been called the treasure of the world because of its many priceless antiquities.
There have been some claims that there is as much as two hundred different minerals in the water of Dead Sea. Some of these minerals that have been said to be found in this reservoir are sulfur, zinc, manganese, iron, calcium, magnesium, zinc and selenium. These minerals are not found in every drop of water that is taken from this reservoir. When these minerals are dissolved in the water of the Dead Sea, they form salts. These salts have high levels of sodium as well as chloride.
The water of the Dead Sea contains more than sixteen million gallons of salt. This is the saltiest salt water on the planet. It is believed that the entire region of the Dead Sea was formed as a lake more than ten thousand years ago. When the Jordan River washed away the sediments that made up the lake, they dumped enormous amounts of salt into the landscape. This created the mineral-rich soil that is so precious today.
Today, it is possible for anyone to enjoy the Dead Sea’s water and to enjoy its relaxing effects. There are resorts that offer a full service relaxation experience where people can luxuriate in the warm water of the Dead Sea and enjoy swimming, snorkeling, and visiting the many attractions that make the Dead Sea such a wonderful place to visit. There are also many spa treatments that can be enjoyed in this water. Many of these treatments include mud treatment, body massage, and hydrotherapy.
As you can see, there is much to do when you decide to visit the Dead Sea. There are plenty of reasons that you will want to go to Israel and spend time in the Dead Sea. As you relax in its soothing waters, you can imagine yourself being transported back in time to an ancient culture that existed for many centuries. It is a unique and magical place to visit.
