`En Gedi Things to Do: 39 reviews and 108 photos
The Dead Sea is renowned for being the lowest place on earth, at close to 400 meters below sea level. This is thanks to the Syrian-African rift, which shaped the geology of the region.
When you drive from Jerusalem (600m above sea level) to the Dead Sea you pass the mark "sea level" on the way downhill.
Near the Ein Gedi spa there is a boardwalk leading to the lowest point, with a few tables providing geological information. It is also accessible for the disabled.
As you are not very likely to have your photo taken on the highest point on earth, Mt. Everest, you can at least take a photo in the lowest point, near Ein Gedi; it's much more accessible!!
Directions: South of Kibbutz Ein Gedi, turn east at the Ein Gedi Spa.
