Well laid out by the side of the road in the wilderness on the road from Jerusalem to the Jordan Valley, Jericho and the Dead Sea. You carry on down a lot further after passing this point! memorable photo opportunity, not to be missed.

A simple monument just off the highway while headed down and east into the valley. Plenty of parking and you can jump out for a quick photo.

Nice detail during the drive from Jerusalem to Dead Sea. On our way back, the bus had difficulties to reach the top of the hill.

The marker for the Sea Level Zero is right on Highway 1, between Jerusalem and the Dead Sea. We stopped here twice – once while going to the Dead Sea, and the second time on our way to Jericho. From this spot, you can only go up or way, way down.

It is a very special spot that has several signs saying what the area is all about – basically telling you that you are at Sea Level – a vertical reference point to show the depth and elevation on our earth. There is a Bedouin guy with a Camel here. People invariably stop to take a photo with that camel or take a short ride. Nearby, there is a strange modern art sculpture with graffiti on it. The beautiful Judean Desert all around contributed towards some fantastic photos for us.

We stopped here for a few minutes, then began descending towards the Dead Sea – the lowest point on this earth at 1412 feet below from where we were. Every 150 feet or so, we saw green markers on the rock surfaces showing how much we have descended. Very cool.

A short visit to this landmark is absolutely worth it. Such a rare opportunity that is ignored by most people.

Once you stop at sea level, prepare to descend to the lowest place on earth. Great little stop to commentate being at sea level.

Stopped here on our tour. Not much here but was neat to stop.
Took some pictures with the signage here.

Wouldn't go out of my way, but if your near worth the stop

It s a strange sensation driving below sea level. You need to stop for the photo and a play with the camel if they are there!

On a tour bus to the Dead Sea our bus stopped here. Nothing much to see here except this sign and a hand sculpture. You can ride a camel for a fee if you'd like.

Actually, the “Sea Level” sign designates the level of the Mediterranean Sea, if a tunnel opened under Israel connecting the Mediterranean to the Dead Sea. After five fabulous days in Jerusalem the week of Christmas, our Overseas Adventure Travel tour group was en route to the Dead Sea. “We’re approaching sea level,” the tour guide said. Necks were craning trying to find what we thought was the Dead Sea, which is 1,410 feet below established sea level, the lowest place on earth outside of caverns.

Nope! We saw only arid desert, a camel ($8 for a 3-minute ride), and what appeared to be fog much lower and in the distance. THAT was the Dead Sea. There is ample space to park, but recommended time should be less than 15 minutes. This is a photo op. One thing that may be of interest is the sculpture that somewhat resembles a hand, just beyond the parking area. I couldn’t find anything on the Web that defines this sculpture depicted in the accompanying photo.

Stopping at sea level take a photo with a camel and the sign before continuing to the lowest place on earth. Pretty cool place to show off to your friends back home
