The Lisan Peninsula (lisan means 'tongue' in Arabic) is a little treasure cove. Weird landscapes because of the Lisan marl formations: salt deposits, erosion and the receding waterbed of the Dead Sea has left a strange landscape out of this world. Navigation is difficult with lots of dead ends.
Besides the landscape there are several historical sites, like Deir al-Kattar al-Byzanti (http://henkbos.com/p290725505
), Qasr al-Abyad and Qasr at-Tuba. We could not visit the last one due to access restrictions from the military.
The area is hot and arid. A visit in the summer is not recommended.
