A beautiful video by Amir Aloni featuring an aerial view of the Dead Sea and the sinkholes that have been opening up around it.
The Dead Sea is a salt lake that sits 400 meters below sea level, making it the lowest point on Earth. It’s famous for its extreme salinity which makes it impossible for plants and fish to survive – hence the name “Dead” Sea.
Because of its healing qualities, the Dead Sea is one of the oldest “health spas” in the world, dating back to the times of Herod. Today, many cosmetics are made from the Dead Sea and tourists flock to vacation by its beautiful shores.
The sea has been shrinking due to evaporation and other environmental factors for decades and sinkholes are forming as a result.
This video captures the beautiful scenery with a unique one-of-a-kind experience. Watch below and experience the beauty for yourself.
