    Rappelling in Israel

    The Negev Desert in Israel covers nearly 60 percent of the country, but it’s home to less than 10 percent of the population. The rest is a playground for outdoor enthusiasts.

    Makhtesh Ramon is usually referred to as a crater, but it is not an impact crater from a meteorite, but rather a valley surrounded by steep walls and drained by a single riverbed. The world’s largest is in the Negev at Mitzpe Ramon.

    A rappelling trek down the side of its steep cliffs is an awesome adventure. To up the ante on the thrill factor, hang upside down in a yoga backbend to see the desert floor become the sky and the sky become the earth.
