The dead sea
The Dead Sea, known in Hebrew as Yam Ha-Melakh (the Sea of Salt) is the lowest point on earth.
It is a salt lake bordered by Jordan to the east, and Palestine and the West Bank to the west.

characterized by its high content of minerals, such as sulfate, bicarbonate, magnesium, hydrogen sulfide,
bromine, chlorine, and potassium.
