Qumran caves in the Judean desert

You can explore hidden desert lakes, ancient castles, and more in Israel! Our friends at Israel21c share their list of the 12 of the most beautiful places to visit in Israel. Here’s number two on their list:

The hidden lake at Timna is perhaps one of the most striking sights in Israel – a bright turquoise body of water surrounded by red mountains in the middle of the desert. Located a short ride outside of Eilat, the lake isn’t a natural one but was formed when the copper quarries at the site were flooded. Since the lake is situated among mines, it’s a little off the beaten track and isn’t the easiest place to get to. And yet, keen travelers are making their way there for a swim in the salty waters and even, as has become somewhat popular lately, for diving in the unusual location.
