The Dead sea is connected to both Israel and Jordan, On the Israeli side it is located in Ein Gedi, near Mesada and not very far from Jerusalem. It is called the Dead Sea because it too salty for anything to live in, animals, fish or plants cannot exist there. It is a beautiful place, very calm and it is the lowest spot on earth, 424 meters below sea level
