from jericho to dead sea area

hello everybody,

after our visit in bethlem we will go to jericho . we were wondering, since the dead sea is very close to this city, is there any way to get from jericho to the dead sea? i have read on the internet that we could hire a taxi from jericho to almog conjunction and then from there get on an israeli tbus? is that correct? if not, which is an other way? go from jericho to jerisualem and then from jerusalem to the dead sea?

thank you in advance

Yes, in principle you can do that. But buses to the Dead Sea come from Jerusalem and might be full. If they are full they will not stop for you and you could be stuck at Almog for hours.

Unless you are prepared to risk that, go back to Jerusalem to get the bus to the Dead Sea.

Shuffaluff is right. I got stranded that way once. On the West Bank, the shortest distance between two points is rarely a straight line. This is something you have to get used to.
