The Judaean Desert is a desert in Israel and the West Bank that lies east of Jerusalem and the Judean hills and west of the Jordan Valley and Dead Sea.
The Judaean Desert overlaps the Negev in the south, to many of its parts the West Bank and partly the Dead Sea region in the east. To avoid duplication of information (and work), and because accessibility to this region is rather based on the previous three areas, use those latter articles to find (and maybe contribute) information. Consider this article more as a park guide that concentrates on the features and sights of the Judaean as a desert region.
