There are many beautiful trails at HaMakhtesh HaGadol (The Big Crater), but if you would like to spend a long while in one place without you or your children getting bored for a moment, you should visit the colorful sands site at HaMakhtesh HaGadol (The Big Crater), on the edge of road number 225 which crosses the crater. During the winter and the spring this place is very busy with visitors, but just like the multi-colored sand that is found here in abundance, there is also room here for everyone. A sea of colorful sand hills awaits you here. But how did all of this wealth come to be? HaMakhtesh HaGadol (The Big Crater or the Hatira Crater) is characterized by sand stone layers of various colors: from dark red and pistachio green to orange and strong yellow. Imagine a geological window that reveals minerals which were integrated into the sand stone for ages. Add to that spaces, in which one can run and never stop and still remain within sight, and you get a half a day of great fun, as long as it is not too hot.
