One of the most magnificent scenic areas in southern Israel is the Ramon Crater. It’s a landscape quite unique to the Israeli desert, formed by a receding ocean millions of years ago, it’s one of the largest in the world for its kind encompassing 40 by 10km and running 500meters deep. At Mitzpe Ramon, an observatory overlooking the crater, you get some of the most stunning desert views anywhere. It’s a breathtaking wondrous sight to experience.
Up next to the observatory is an Alpaca farm you can visit, and if you drive down the cliffs there’s a colored sand saw mill for you to play around with. Other than that – just drive around and enjoy the apocalyptic desert scenery.
