ramon crater 6

Located at the lowest part of the Ramon Crater, Parsat Nekarot  (English: Nekarot horseshoe) is a scenic path along drainage line of the Ramon Crater. Eroded by countless flashfloods over millions of years, its water formed some surprising and beautiful rounded forms in the local limestone. Today, a comfortable 4 miles hike follows the curved dry riverbed passing some majestic landscape of the Negev desert. It also passes through the Roman-era caravanserai Metsad Saharonim, part of the ancient Nabatean Incense Route.
