The Dead Sea region is home to a breathtakingly beautiful landscape made up of cliffs and canyons and features an abundance of extraordinary wildlife.

The high salt content of its waters make for a unique floating experience – while the sulfur pools and designated children’s pools attract many thousands of visitors from all around the world.

The Dead Sea is not only notable for its natural attractions, but provides plenty of opportunities for sightseeing. The nearby town of Jericho is the largest town between the Dead Sea and Jerusalem, and famous for its salt mines – as well as its place in the Old Testament.

  The city is believed to be the site of one of the oldest human settlements with the modern town home to a mound known as Tell es-Sultan, the remains of ancient cities which existed here more than 9000 years ago.

Other notable sites include Hisham’s Palace which was built around 747 AD, where visitors can view the remains of several royal buildings including a mosque, water fountains and impressive mosaic floors.

The Wadi Qelt Synagogue is worth visiting too, since it is believed to be the oldest synagogue in the world, and part of the ‘Jericho Royal Winter Palace’ which was constructed during the Second Temple period.


The Sycamore Tree of Jericho can be found in the city center and is a tree which is referred to in the Bible, due to its being associated with Jesus’ visit to Jericho – and this is definitely worth paying a visit to during a visit to this fascinating Dead Sea city.


Jericho also known for its Dead Sea skincare products and spas whose available not only for tourist visiting the area but for the local population also
