Vital Statistics

The low point for Israel is located all along the shores of the Dead Sea.  The Dead Sea is the lowest point of the surface of the Earth at 423m (or 1,388 ft) below sea level.  Jordan and Palestine also border the Dead Sea so all three countries share the shores of the Dead Sea as their lowest point.  The Dead Sea is also the lowest point in the continent of Asia.

Access to the portion of the Dead Sea that borders Israel is easy, as it has been developed as a major tourist area with many hotels, spas and tourist attractions.
