Seeing this is akin to being hypnotized as a half abandoned world is spread out before you---- a space still on Earth that was here hundreds of millions of years earlier! There is ample walking area to wander as you wonder. This is the largest...More

We saw parts of the crater and had a guide describe how it was formed and how the water flowed out - really a great experience. It continues to amaze me as to the incredible natural and historical sites are available in Israel!

Gorgeous views. Fascinating million year history. Don't skip it because of fear of the heat- its dry so not as bad as the same temperatures in Tel Aviv. Just be sure to hydrate!

We stay in Beresheet Resort Hotel and enjoy view of the crater. In the evening we had nice sunset dinner on the bottom of the crater. It was very unusual and pleasant. We will recommend to visit the crater.

Very hot when we were there in mid-May. Spectacular views. Take a desert tour if you can. Missed the swimming hole on our tour but went to one at Ein Gedi

Truly spectacular views from the rim of the crater and even better views driving through it. We wished we had time to stop and do some hiking!

Not a familiar crafter, but the result of 100rds of millions years of erosion after the sea retreated. Spectacular views and you'll find proof of old seabed through sediment and fossils. Impressive and amazing!

I promise you have not seen such a landscape anywhere else in the world. The crater gives a sense of infinite size combined with amazing silence. Hotels, hostels, guesthouses or a tent in an area with a million stars in the sky, there is everything...More
