The views are amazing, the heat might get unbearable in the summer months. Don't go there specially for it but spend a few hours if you pass by...

Very much worth going out of your way to get to, it's absolutely breathtaking at sunrise. I highly recommend getting out of bed early since this is when the crater really takes your breath away.
If getting up early really isn't your thing, go when light is slowly fading since the sun at it's peak really doesn't do the landscape justice (more shadows = more wow).
I was not expecting much but I'm extremely glad chance brought me here, it's worth going out of your way to visit.

This was one of the best parts of our trip. Just amazing. We used Desert Eco Tours and they are great.

I wasn't expecting much from this 'hole- in- the- ground' in Israel, so I was pleasantly surprised when I saw it. It's not the Grand Canyon, but it's very beautiful.
One thing I loved is the way the light plays across the rock faces and land forms, changing them continually. Another thing is Mitspe Ramon has put in a really nice viewing platform that hangs over the crater, and is complete with a roof for sun protection.
The crater is big, it has interesting formations and provides a great view. There are hiking paths through it, which we did not venture down. It is wheelchair accessible from the parking lot to viewing areas.
Another interesting thing are the ibex that hang around here, and will hold still long enough to get a photo.
All in all, it's worth stopping by for a visit.

History drama . A landscape worthy of a high budget adventure film . A great trip for family or just adults all levels of intensity available . Avoid July August trips mid day
