Exploring Makhtesh Ramon in the Negev Desert, Israel

Makhtesh Ramon is the world’s largest natural crater, and it’s located is Israel’s Negev Desert. It was formed hundreds of millions of years ago by water erosion. The area is huge, so we took an off road tour in a Land Rover to explore the depths of the crater. This area is rich with human and geological history, and we had a great guide named Adam Sela who explained some of that history to us. Adam is extremely knowledgeable about the desert and made our experience much more enjoyable than if we had tried to explore on our own. The best part of the day for me was getting to rappel down the crater. I’ve never done that before, and it was exhilarating! You can also hike, camp, and go stargazing at night.
