Create an itinerary including Ramon Crater
A geological formation echoing the region's oceanic past, Ramon Crater lies in the heart of the desert. Covered by water millions of years ago, the crater was carved out and eroded as the sea slowly drained away, leaving the exposed rock you see today. Encounter this stark lunar-like expanse by foot or vehicle, making your way down the 500 m (1,640 ft) deep cavity. Stop off at the visitor center for a more in-depth look at the landform's history. Bring plenty of water and sunscreen, and avoid hiking in the mid-day heat. Put Ramon Crater into our Mitspe Ramon online trip builder to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Mitspe Ramon.

  • It was good, the scenery was excellent! Well worth seeing, especially if you've not seen anything like it before. There was animal poo everywhere though!

  • Enjoy tranquil views, at what could possibly be the most relaxing place.
  • An amazing vantage point across the entire Ramon crater. I highly recommend coming here during the last hour or so before the sunset as you can see amazing colors and see how the different textures of the crater are colored differently. Also lots of places to take in the amazing views here.
