Otherworldly and amazing. Worth the long drive down. The colours of the sand are unreal. (For those wanting to bring sand home please head to the ‘Colourful Sand Park’ in the crater)

Spectacular. Otherworldly. Despite being so much smaller than the Grand Canyon it has its own specialness. It is worth taking drives and hikes off the main roads to see the different sights.

It's like a massive rocky bowl that makes you feel like you've stepped onto another planet. I half-expected to see a Martian rover cruising around. The colors are something else – all these warm desert tones playing together, especially during sunset, when everything turns into this breathtaking palette of oranges and purples. t's so peaceful, you can almost hear the wind whispering through the rocks. It's like a natural meditation session, minus the yoga pants.

Fascinating place. Strongly recommend going with a guide who can explain what you're seeking. This place is very different than anywhere else I've been in more than 40 countries.
Please see pics below. Strongly recommended.

Amazing place - walk the rim, drive inside. The views take your breath away. If you park at the visitors center be sure to ask how to pay for parking, otherwise you will get a ticket. All the parking signs are in Hebrew so if you need help ask inside.
There are some great hikes inside the crater and nice places to have a picnic lunch.

If you are driving from Tel Aviv or Jerusalem to Eilat, this is a beautiful spot to stop and stretch your legs and take in the scenery. The geology of the area is unique--it is a crater formed by erosion, not a meteor impact. There is a parking spot along the rim with benches and some explanatory signs, and we stopped there for a picnic lunch. While there we were entertained by an Ibex (a type of goat) wandering in the area.

Your visit can be a short (30 minute) stop to take in the scenery, or longer if you want to hike (which we did not do but if not too hot the hiking is said to be good).

Find a hike to do on the rim - you will get better views than from inside. Also, stargazing here is a must.

Many hikers come to experience the beauties of the desert from the top and bottom of the crater with new views and rock formations at every turn. Jeep visits with guides are also available.

Mahktesh Ramon may be the best national park in Israel. The scenery is one-of-a-kind - somewhat like the Grand Canyon, without the Colorado River

Beautiful stark desert scenery. Outstanding views from the rim. You can also go into the floor of the crater along highway 40. If you want a getaway where you can totally switch off and enjoy the moment, there is no place better.
