Beautiful spot. Geographically fascinating. Practically nothing like in the world. Definitely worth a visit.

We had an outstanding trip to the crater. 10/10 for Boaz our guide, whose extensive knowledge of geological formations, flora and fauna made this a most enlightening experience and gave us a new respect for the desert environment. Highly recommended.

Did an off road tour. Tough on the body, but absolutely fascinating. Was definitely an interesting excursion and very different from all of the historical and religious stops on the trip.

Worth it to invest in the tour of crater- you need a Range River type vehicle to go off road and see the best sites. It’s dangerous to do alone. Star gazing - and sunrise- free and you are positioned perfectly at the hotel... More
