Yes, many millions of people visit the infamous salt lake each year. Many make the trip because of it’s interesting characteristics. It is the lowest land point on Earth that is below sea level (about 417 meters), and is known for its high concentration of salt content. It is because of this salt concentration that the lake gets its name ‘the Dead Sea,’ because no life can live or procreate in the water.
