The Dead Sea – the lowest place on earth – is at once an eerie and uplifting place. Known as the dwelling of the ancient ascetics who authored the Dead Sea Scrolls, and as a place of healing and rejuvenation, no trip to Israel is complete without a visit to this salty lake. But it might not be quite what you expect.
TLV1’s Laragh Widdess visits the stunning Ein Gedi to paint a picture of today’s Dead Sea landscape, and to see how the community there is coping with environmental disaster.
