  • A makhtesh (crater) is a geological landform considered unique to the Negev desert of Israel, and not actually an impact crater from a meteor. Ramon Crater is the world's largest makhtesh. The visitors’ center on the edge of the crater offers an amazing view of the crater’s beauty and its treasures, and the zoological garden houses local desert animals.
