Why is the Dead Sea so salty?

The salt content is so high because the lake is located in a hot desert climate in which much more water evaporates than through rain and is added by the rivers. Only the water vapor escapes, while the salts and other minerals remain behind and accumulate in the water.

The Dead Sea also has no outlet with which the salts could be washed away, because it is 426 m lower than sea level, making it the lowest point on earth.

For 80 years, the sea level has been sinking particularly fast, by one meter per year, because a large part of the water from the main tributary Jordan is used for irrigation and water supply. As a result, the salt content is also slowly increasing.

When to visit the Dead Sea?

Floating on the water under the infinite sky is bliss. And when the climate is soothing, the experience can turn out to be enchanting. The best time to visit this place is during the months of September-November when the temperature falls.
