10 stunning photographs of Israel’s deserts

by Touchpoint Israel

Did you know more than half of Israel’s total land area is desert? Despite much of the land being unpopulated, the rugged mountains and serene landscapes are brimming with natural beauty.

From the Ramon Crater in the Negev desert, the largest erosion crater in the world, to the valleys of the Arava, the deserts in Israel are home to enchanting natural wonders, blossoming agriculture, scientific innovation and extraordinary wildlife of all sorts.

While on the surface, miles of desert may appear to be the same, you’re invited to take a closer look and discover the unique magic of Israel’s deserts.
