Lower Jordan

by Mackenzie Landi
Lower Jordan River

The Jordan Valley extends from the outlet of the Jordan River at the Sea of Galilee to its inlet into the Dead Sea, just a little over 62 miles to the south. The Jordan River emerges from an area of stately date grows near the first kibbutz, Degania, flows past the Yardenit baptismal site, and passes the famous ruins of Beit She’an. As you continue south, you’ll pass the area where the Israelites crossed the Jordan into the Promised Land, and you will come to their first destination—Jericho—the oldest city in the world.
