Beautiful erosion crater in Mitzpe Ramon. Definitely recommend if you are in the area- we did a Jeep tour with Deep Desert Israel.

The best way to view the crater is by joining a jeep tour. It's rough terrain, but worth getting to the top for tremendous views. It is the world's largest Makhtesh, a crater caused by erosion and not a meteor or volcanic eruption.

It's not the first time that I've been here, but it amazes again- it's like looking out at the primordial beginning- so vast and expansive... and empty. Take your time, go at different times of the day and night... and breathe deeply.... and don't fall...More

Stunning any time of day.. Even if you dont hike, climb or walk too far. The viewing platform offers a great view of the crater as does the nice walk along the "Albert Promenade". All kinds of offers at the Visitors center.
