  • An amazing place in the Israeli desert; stay at the Yeruham hotel and do a day hike here. There are not many hiking options, there is a long trail so you need to be prepared with a map and food and water supplies. For the experienced Trail Blazers, I recommend a two day hike with a sleep over in the colored sands. It is recommended to do this hike in the winter, beware of desert conditions - always consult with the Israeli park authorities before hand.
