The Negev Highland Trail is a multi-day trek that crosses the Negev Highland from Merhav Am in the north all the way to the Ramon Crater in the south. The trail is dotted with accommodations, some of which are guesthouses and hotels while others are traditional tent-stays with the Bedouin. The trail takes you to some of the most imposing sites in the area, such as the Zin Valley, the Ancient City of Avdat and the stunning Ramon Crater. It is recommended to walk the trail from autumn to the end of spring. The desert summer is too hot for a safe and enjoyable walk and may even be dangerous. The trail is well marked with purple markers.

This is a really wonderful multi-day desert hike. The scenery is amazing and the Bedouin overnight stays are lots of fun!
