I hired a driver and car while I was staying at the Movenpick Dead Sea Resort to visit Lot’s Cave, Lowest Point on Earth Museum, and the Dead Sea Museum. Lot’s Cave and the Lowest Point on Earth Museum are very close to each other and they were about 45 minutes from my hotel.

When I got to Lot’s Cave, there were no other visitors around. It took a few minutes to walk up a set of stairs to the cave. A worker at the cave walked up with me. Access into the cave was not permitted. Bars surrounded the cave to prevent access. There are also the remains of a church and water reservoir next to the cave. There are signs that are in Arabic and English. You do get a good view of the countryside from the cave viewing platform.

It was sunny and hot walking up to the cave. I recommend to bring a hat and water and to wear sunscreen.

This place is a slight detour off the dead sea hwy. There is a museum at the bottom of the hill where you park. They accept Jordan pass. Its a 10 min hike to the cave which is exhausting in the heat. Definitely dress up for it with hat sunscreen sunglasses. The museum is very interesting. The cave itself has been excavated to prove that this is definitely Lots cave where he took refuge with his daughters. There is this mosaic in the cave which is so old. The cave itself is sheltered.

to get here, you actually drive out the back of the parking lot for the lowest pint on earth museum, and up a narrow dirt road. Not much to see, and little info about it, but it takes little time and it is a beautiful setting

The feeling of being in a place that Lot may have actually lived was a bit surreal for me. The cave is up high in the cliff just above the Museum of the Lowest Point on Earth. You drive around to the back of the museum to a parking spot and there are steps leading up to it. A church was built there to remember this site as the place where Lot took refuge after fleeing Sodom and Gomorrah. The place is really ancient and there is a great a sense of history there. The cave overlooks a body of water that I mistook to be the Dead Sea but turns out to be a lake south of the Dead Sea that is not identified in Google Maps. Lots of farms grow an abundance of vegetables and fruit here.

The Franciscans sponsored excavating the site and it truly is incredible given its position in the Jordanian desert and its connection to the saltiness of the Dead Sea and the proposed sites of Sodom and Gomorrah.

It’s quite a hike up to some of the caves but it is well worth the effort.

There is so much history in Jordan that has yet to be excavated, to be discovered.

Very interesting museum of artifacts as well in the museum at the entrance to the site.

Off the beaten track but so rich in culture and history. The historical and scientific evidence brings the Old Testament to life. The south end of the Dead Sea is quite a drive but the scenery is breath-taking and the small but excellent museum full of information and fascinating artefacts. Quite a climb up to the cave and the ruins of the Byzantine basilica protecting it but the impression is awesome and the views absolutely spectacular, especially at sunset.

If you drive along the Dead Sea Highway you will pass it, so we took a break here. The museum is really nice and you can even buy some small textiles made buy local women. There is a list you can write down your country and your name. In two weeks they had eleven guests. One couple from canada, some french, two germans adn some americans, so a really quiet and nice place to relax and check out some ancient cultural site. We gave the local kids there some sweets from Norway they never saw before. The people are so lovely there. There is Mosaic-restauration going on in the museum, you can watch. The cave/church is a short drive up the hill and a little walk up some stairs. The view is great and yes the cave entrance is pretty small. And like already said in other reviews, take water with you up.

The museum was done really well with lots of food information on the geography and people from this area over many centuries. Gave a solid understanding and helped me with Biblical perspective on Lot's cave.

The actual cave is small but the worship area is worth the 200 steps. And the view of the Dead Sea amazing.
