Route & Duration
Desert Sculpture Park
Desert Sculpture Park on the brink of the Ramon Crater is related to the settling of the Negev, the recognition of the Israeli art world and Israeli artists, the artist's deep connection to the history of the land and its landscapes, and the development of Israeli art.
Mitzpe Ramon Visitors Center
The Mitzpe Ramon Visitor Center offers interactive exhibits explaining the natural processes which led to the creation of the makhtesh (which is over 40km long at its widest point). It also offers interesting information about the plant and animal life that live in what might be assumed to be a barren and inhospitable region.
It is a lookout porch of a Roman crater from a ledge extending over the cliff. Here you will have the best view of the whole roman crater, and it is a great spot for a picnic.
It is a small hill resembling a sitting camel that overlooks the Ramon Crater. This beautiful desert site offers a stunning view of the crater, and the observation deck is one of the best places to watch the sun rise or set.
