On November 15th 2016,

a 1st ever international swim event – a challenge to swim across the Dead Sea.

 

 

 

As the lowest point on earth, and the deepest hyper-saline lake in the world, the Dead Sea is a natural and historical wonder. Tragically it is disappearing before our eyes.  Over the last 30 years, the Dead Sea’s water level has dropped by more than 25 meters.
