The Hebrew name for the Jordan river is Yarden (ירדן), a word formed from the Hebrew words yorayd Dan (יורד דן), which means ‘descends [from] Dan.’ The territory of Dan is the northernmost part of Israel. The Jordan river flows the length of the country from north to south, starting near Dan at the foot of Mount Hermon, and ending at the Dead Sea. In its 250 km course, the Jordan River descends from a height of over 2800 km above sea level to more than 350 km below, making it the river with the lowest elevation in the world. Many name of cities, rivers, and mountains in Israel are rooted in meaning and etymology from the Bible.
