# 9. The Dead Sea
The Dead Sea is found at the lowest point of the earth and is one of the most interesting and intriguing lakes in the world. It is one of the world’s saltiest bodies and also known to have mad that is great for the skin. Its high salt levels have attracted visitors from around the world and also allow them to float without effort.
However, both geological and human factors have led to the demise of the Dead Sea. For instance, human activities such as industrial mineral extraction and agricultural activities have posed a danger to the Dead Sea. It is likely that the Dead Sea will have completely dried up within the next 50 years.
