Mitzpe Ramon to Pharan. Approx. 60 Km
Follow the “Israel Trail” out of the Crater heading south, towards the southern Negev Region. The trail will take you along the limestone hills of the area, crossing some large and dry river beds that rush a few times each year with flash flood water.
Continue south until you reach Wadi Pharan, the largest basin of flash flood water in the entire Negev. Follow the dirt road in the wadi to the Nabatical Fort. Continue west, gradually going downhill to the modern Pharan, a desert agricultural community.
Overnight in Pharan.
