Makhtesh Ramon eroded geological layers tell the epic story of Earth's early history, exposing an abundance of aquatic fossils from the days when this highland used to reside at the bottom of an ocean. Dry and barren at first sight, Makhtesh Ramon is teeming with life so long as you know where to look for it. Wild asses, mountain goats, raptors, reptiles and insects are among the wild inhabitants of this piece of land. Thanks to seasonal flash-floods which provide the desert with precious water, this delicate ecosystem includes also some incredible vegetation which has evolved to survive the harsh environmental conditions. Depending on the time of year, you may also witness the awesome force of a flash-flood, or dip your feet in the seasonal water bodies left as their reminder.
