Sedom, also known as Sodom, Israel is a town in the southeastern part of the country, near the south end of the Dead Sea. It is most well known for being the home to the Dead Sea Works (now a private company), a potash fertiliser plant. During the Arab-Israeli War, the region was cut off from the rest of Israel. A road from Beersheba, 95 kilometres to the northwest, wasn’t completed until the mid 1950s.
The easiest way to get here is by bus from Arad. There may not be buses every day; your hostel should be able to give you a better idea of transport if arriving out of the high season.
Most people head to this arid part of the country to visit the salt works, the Dead Sea, and the wind and water shaped gorges. There are several hostels in the surrounding area of Sedom to stay at, but its best to check in advance as these are youth hostels that cater to large groups of students. It’s possible that the hostel is closed for an Israeli youth camp or overseas school group. If you can’t find anything here, Arad is a short distance away and you can search there for a hostel.
The Dead Sea is called such because of its high saline (salt) content that discourages marine life from inhabiting it. The region is often considered a health region, despite its “dead” moniker; you’ll likely see locals touting homemade salt scrubs or lotions. Mount Sodom is a unique salt mountain on which no plant can grow; it’s resulting appearance is moonlike and pockmarked with craters. The highlight at Mount Sodom is the Malch’am, the Israeli Center for Caves Research, a 5,500m long salt cavern. Unfortunately, following several collapses, the caves were closed to visitors. You can, however, hike up the mountain. One of the most interesting hikes is the Fish Trail, which links the summit with the old workers accommodation on the Dead Sea Works.
