When to go camping here?
The best camping sites at the Negev Desert in Israel
The Negev is a mountainous area whose tallest mountain is Mount Ramon at 1,037 m.
Geological craters are a phenomenon unique to the Negev and Sinai regions. They were created on the top of mountains by million of years of rain and erosion. The hebrew word for crater is Machtesh and this name appears on some of the signs on the way. The Ramon Crater (Machtesh Ramon- מכתש רמון) is the largest one in the whole world. Its a very popular destination for hiking and biking. Because it’s far away from civilization and a deep land mass surrounded by mountains, the crater offers the most amazing star views imaginable.
