World Wonders-Dead Sea between Israel & Jordan

The Dead Sea is also known as the Sea of Salt. This massive salt lake is spread between Israel and the west bank on the west and Jordan on the east. The Dead Sea is 1,385 feet below sea level. It is also said that the shores of the salt lake are the lowest point in the entire surface of earth. 
The salt lake is 1,240 feet deep, which makes it the deepest hyper saline lake in the world. The total salinity of the ocean is 33.7 percent. So for a common man, it is easier to know that the sea is eight times more salty than the ocean. The Dead Sea is 67 kilometer long and 18 kilometer wide. The main tributary of the sea is the Jordan River as it lies in the Jordan Rift Valley.
