Sea of Galilee, Israel
The Sea of Galilee (a.k.a. Lake Tiberias) lies almost 700 feet below sea level. Yet, it's a fresh water lake. Like its southerly partner, the highly saline Dead Sea (almost 1400 ft below sea level), it occupies a rift valley. The two share the same geology but have very dissimilar hydrology. Why? By the way, the horst on the other side is the Golan Heights.
