As the lowest point on earth, at 431 meters (1,410 feet) below sea level, this incredibly saline, and historically rich lake is nothing short of absolutely stunning.

At the time, Petra was an important junction for the silk, spice and other trade routes that linked China, India and southern Arabia with Egypt, Syria, Greece and Rome.
