Geocache Description:

Welcome to the lowest place on Earth
This quick and easy cache is located at an altitude of -355 by the South Entrance to Ein Bokek.
I went there with my dad and son before the girls woke up for a quick cache placing :)
Please log your visit with a photo at the same position as spoiler 2 image

Ein Bokek is a hotel and resort district on the Israeli shore of the Dead Sea, near Neve Zohar.

Archaeological findings at Ein Bokek include the ruins of Metzad Bokek, a small Roman fortress commanding the main road, and the remains of an ancient partly reconstructed perfume and medicine factory. The Bokek Stream, for which the district is named, is a canyon-like gorge with water springs and unique fauna and flora.

The Zohar Hot Springs are located three kilometers south of Ein Bokek. Rich in sulphur, the water is believed to be particularly beneficial in the treatment of muscular ailments, diseases of the joints and allergies.
