Our tour will start in the route of the two hour tour and we will leave the Machtesh in the direction of the Nakartot stream “the giant stream”, which drains the Machtesh Ramon and try to see the deer, or Ibex or wild asses in the stream’s bed, we will leave the stream in the direction of the oil route, along which the landscape changes sharply, to Mount Saharonim from which an amazing vista can be seen of the Machtesh.
