The “Ramon” crater is unique geological formation, some 85 km south of Beer-Sheva. It’s formation name is “Makhtesh” which means “Crater” but it was NOT formed by a meteorite or a volcanic eruption. In and around the Ramon crater are several points of interest combining archaeology, geology, and nature:
Jeep tour in Ramon Crater , or to Mount Karkom , Ramon Crater Visitors Center , Stars Watching Session in Machtesh Ramon , Rappeling in Ramon Crater , The “Carpentry” , Salman Bedouin Hospitality Experience or a jeep tour along The “Incense Route” .
Makhtesh Ramon ( Hebrew: מכתש רמון; lit. Ramon Crater/ Makhtesh ; Arabic: وادي الرمان) is a geological feature of Israel’s Negev desert. Located at the peak of Mount Negev, some 85 km south of the city of Beersheba, the landform is not an impact crater from a meteor nor a volcanic crater formed by a volcanic eruption, but rather is the world’s largest “erosion cirque” ( steephead valley or box canyons).
