Dig a little deeper through this seemingly destitute landscape and you will be amazed at the treasures it conceals. Watch the breathtaking sunrise atop the fortress of Masada in the east of the Negev or gaze at the millions of stars visible in the dark desert sky, walk on the alien landscape of Makhtesh created by thousands of years of water erosion and let your senses be overwhelmed by the tranquility and magnificence of the desert. Choose to brave the Negev and you will surely be rewarded with beautiful once in a life time vistas and memories you will cherish for years to come.
