A majestic lake with turquoise waters in Israel, the Dead Sea is the lowest point on Earth at 430.5 meters below sea level. Golden brown hills surround the lake like a crown and salt crystals protrude out of it. The body of water was named the Dead Sea because it’s eight times saltier than the ocean, making impossible for algae and fish to survive in its waters. Take a dip in the lake and you’ll soon find out that you can float effortlessly, as the water is super buoyant. In addition, its rich black mud can be used for therapeutic purposes, making it a peaceful sanctuary to hit the pause button on life.
The Grand Canyon overwhelms the senses with its massive size as it plummets to a depth of 6,000 feet. The beautifully carved rocks that began to take shape some 70 million years ago are older than the dinosaurs. Arizona’s legendary landmark is home to 70 different species of animals and it carries a great spiritual significance for the Hopi Native American Tribe who believe it’s a gateway to the afterlife. Stretching for 18 miles, there’s no denying that the photogenic copper-colored canyon is a member of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World club.
