Sea level

 

The Sea of Galilee, Yam Kinneret in Hebrew, is in the Jordan Valley 210 m below the Mediterranean Sea level. It is 12 km wide and 21 km long and covers an area of 170 km² and has a depth of 46 m at its deepest point. It serves as Israel's largest reservoir of sweet water. Gila Toledano, the Israeli guide, stands beneath a tourist information panel.
