The Dead Sea
Do you want to paddle there?
On the lowest place on earth, where Lot's wife turned into a pillar of salt, lies the Dead Sea.
Everything floats on the Dead Sea, paddling is different from anywhere else in the world. Water is heavy and salty. Paddling is slower and what about the view? The view is virgin, primordial and full of salt crystals in different shapes and sizes. Around the Dead Sea, the mountains are powerful. On the east, Moav Mountains, on the west, the cliffs of He'etekim and Dragot.
We will start from Bianchini beach on the north of the Dead Sea, paddle south alongside the salt crystals, a primeval and primordial view seen only from the sea. Then we will paddle along the coastline and be back by lunch.
10-20 kilometers, depends on the group. One day trip is also possible.
Day 2 - On Foot:
On route 40, just before the Arava junction, we go down to Peres cisterns and continue with the river and the dried up waterfalls, until we reach the big waterfall, where we climb back to the intersection.
About 6 kilometers, moderate difficulty.
