It’s huge - forty-two kilometres long and an average of eight kilometres wide. You might say it’s Israel’s answer to the Grand Canyon, but it’s not a canyon or crater, it’s a ‘maktesh’. A maktesh is formed over millions of years from ocean activity and has no entry, only an exit. A high mountain, formed by volcanic pressure in the ancient sea with a solid surface and soft centre, erodes and the result is spectacular. Another rich beauty in the Negev Desert at Mitzpe Ramon.
