What you can expect

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Pass By: Ramon Crater Visitor Center - Makhtesh Ramon, Rehov Maale Ben Tur, Mitspe Ramon 1527600 Israel

We can begin here or at any other location in town. Depending on weather and other things we can start with the abseailing or the jeep tour and if you prefer one or the other just say so. The abseiling is right next to the viositor's center.

Stop At: Ramon Crater Visitor Center - Makhtesh Ramon, Rehov Maale Ben Tur, Mitspe Ramon 1527600 Israel

If we start with the abseiling then we will meet you at the site itself - right next to the Visitors center. The duration of this activity will depend on how many people you are and your comfort level as in how you cope with the 'fear factor'.

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Ramon Crater, Mitspe Ramon Israel

After descending the winding Independence pass we will stop in the sandy river bed of Wadi Ramon, right in the middle of the “crater” for an explanation on the geology of this amazing errosive cavity and why it is not in fact a “crater”.

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: Ramon Crater, Mitspe Ramon Israel

Our next stop will be in the shade of an ancient Accacia tree or next to a stoneage archaelogical site (if you have a preference be sure to let us know). If it is a hot sunny day then we/you will probably prefer the shade of the Accacia and if you are a history buff then the Neolitic site will be the site.

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: Ramon Crater, Mitspe Ramon Israel

Get high, legally, our next stop is on the summit of Mt. Gvanim which provides a stunning view of the whole “crater”.

Duration: 20 minutes

Pass By: Ramon Crater, Mitspe Ramon Israel

After descending Mt Gvanim we will continue along Wadi Zohalim with it's lovely colours and stunted Accacia trees.

Stop At: Ramon Crater Visitor Center - Makhtesh Ramon, Rehov Maale Ben Tur, Mitspe Ramon 1527600 Israel

If we did not start with the abseiling/rappelling then we will finish with it. If you prefer one option over the other be sure to let us know.

Duration: 45 minutes
