Ramon Crater, Mitspe Ramon
(4.9/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
A geological formation echoing the region's oceanic past, Ramon Crater lies in the heart of the desert. Covered by water millions of years ago, the crater was carved out and eroded as the sea slowly drained away, leaving the exposed rock you see today. Encounter this stark lunar-like expanse by foot or vehicle, making your way down the 500 m (1,640 ft) deep cavity. Stop off at the visitor center for a more in-depth look at the landform's history. Bring plenty of water and sunscreen, and avoid hiking in the mid-day heat. A visit to Ramon Crater represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Mitspe Ramon itinerary builder to plot your vacation.
