Travel Tips from people who've been to En Gedi
i love the dead sea although its dead it gives u life, it is so basic that the pleasures to seek are found in the springs black mud and salty sea that has so much beyonce that it feels like its trying to spit u out.i would say my last trip trip had equal doses of the good the bad ad the ugly. i turned up o a jewish holidy without a room in summer, u whould book and my oly option was to sleep i a room with yaba a russian woman who seemed to be dieig of terrible flesh wouds there was o air con ad she wailed i the night. poor yaba i could only suggest pee but i think she found it pretty uouthodox ad only spoke russia, she could only say allo vera allo vare but there was non, the reseptionist was a very agressive lady with a chain metal bra who was about to retire i a week ad was givig all her gusto in beibg the worst customer service in history the security gard was a hot hippy who had a two gun belt ad a bucket of gat that kept him stoned and horny at all times, i then got a massage from beeny who is a guy who drives a jeep around wildly in just his pants with a bunch of bewildered dogs i the back, i took up the beey special massage because
he is a therapist aparetly well he splashed me with a half litter bottle of sesame oil and went at me like a jewish mother to a snitzel, it was appaling, then after beatig off the other guys jesus in heaven i was tired i eeded a break, then the very quite bedwin gardeer came forward ad saved me, we had a even of pipes dancig good food made from desert herbs and some hands on healing and some good stories. i was very greatful for his hospitality ad left the next day for jeruselem refreshed.............but then there where the fucking christian fudamentalists to deal with.......... for half this trip i did stay in the field school which is like a concrete bunker with an outside museum full of stuffed animals , the place feels deserted so its peaceful with absolutly beautiful views ad many ibexand a very fantastic buffet made at night by some very nice palistinia boys.

Hiking outside in the mountains of En Gedi has been one of the coolest things I've ever done. The view is amazing! ... the Red Sea, Jordan, the mountains! They have these cute little rodent animals that I've never seen and also einbecks (think I'm misspelling), a type of mountain goat. I saw one climb up into a tree! The waterfalls are BEYOND amazing. Well worth the exhausting hike up to the top of the mountain. If you plan to hike, be sure you're in fairly good shape... you're in for a workout.

The beach at Ein Gedi is not very pretty at all, but the best spot for the obligatory dip in the dead sea. Busses go there from Jerusalem frequently. Taking busses back is quite a challenge, it's easier to stop a Sherut and hich a ride back.
