Just before the summer scorching sun will dry the desert, we will hike on the remote area of the western Ramon crater, and experience the short yet magnificent desert spring.

The high altitude of the high Negev allows many rare kinds of flowers and trees, following this year’s rains we will look for different kinds of Tulips, the magnificent ancient Pistachio trees and the mysterious desert Rhubarb that blooms only once in few years.

Also on this 18km intermediate level hike we will look for the remains of ancient civilizations and hike on the edge of the majestic Ramon Crater, overlooking  its wild rugged desert wilderness landscapes.
