If you´re looking for a short and beautiful hike in the Ramon Cater, this is the one. This all-time classic hike starts at the visitors centre in Mizpe ramon. The visitors centre is well worth a visit in itself and from its terrace the crater stretches wide and far under your feet. From here you head down a steep slope right into the heart of the crater. The descent is steep and can be slightly challenging, but its very short and anyone can do it. Once at the bottom of the crater you need to walk a little to get to a hill called “HaMinsara¨, which translates “The Prism”. The hill is more commonly known in English as ¨The Carpentry¨. The name derives from the assortment of basalt rocks in geometric prism shapes found all over. These rocks have gained their forms through a unique geological process and are fascinating to see and touch. This hike is a perfect showcase to the Ramon Crater. It combines the distinctive geology of the crater with a short saunter in its awe-inspiring landscape. Its better if you used two cars for this hike, as there´s no public transport to help you out of the crater. There is barely any shade on the way, so even though it isn´t long, you should remember to carry a sufficient amount of water.
