Jordan - Dead Sea Highway (PDF Chapter)

$4.95 USD

This is the Dead Sea Highway chapter from Lonely Planet’s Jordan guide-book.

Sometimes you’ve got to get down low to find the real highlights. The Dead Sea is the example par excellence – to be found quite literally at the lowest point on earth. Taking a dip takes on a new meaning here, as the intensely salty water keeps you so buoyant you’ll be bobbing about like a cork rather than gracefully swimming a few strokes.

  • wallow in hot springs at Hammamat Ma’in, one of the region’s thermal oases
  • maps
  • drive from high ground to low ground towards the Dead Sea Highway for the best views in Jordan
  • transport
