The scenery is absolutely stunning. If you like nature, outside of the hot summer months, to enjoy the crater, take a hike in the area (but take all the necessary precautions - map, water, sunscreen); and if you feel that you are not likely to return here, consider taking a jeep tour to allow you to explore as much of the beauty of this place as possible.

Anyone who decides to go to Israel even if they are not geologist will appreciate the strucutures and landscape.

I stopped here between Eilat and Beer Sheva, and it was worth the stopping time for sure! It's absolutely spectacular, with stunning views and amazing scenery - good for awesome panorama shots! If I had the chance, I would have happily paid for a jeep ride to see more of it.

great geological formations, amonite fosils, coloured sandstone and much more. the hiking is superb and adventurous. the trails are clean and wild Ibex roam the area. there are also Onagers but they are more challenging to find. the nature is well preserved and off-road driving is limited to marked trails. rappelling, mountain biking, hiking are available and there is a well facilitated camp site in the centre of the machtesh. nights in winter can reach freezing and days in summer scorching but the sunrise is spectacular and worth getting up for ...also early morning hiking is fantastic all year round.
