יאהלא – אוהל האירוח של סאלם

 

Yahala – Salem’s Bedouin Hospitality Tent

 Salem’s tent is located on a hilltop, one kilometer west of the entrance to the Ein Avdat parking. From the top of the hill, the tent looks out over the ancient desert landscape and the vast open spaces where fragments of the past can be found: the Nabataean city of Avdat, Ramat Avdat and Ramat Divshon. The sights are wonderful, and become even more intense with during the sunset and the sunrise hours. The tent itself is comfortable and spacious. Mats cover the floors, with cushions lining the tent. The fire pit is on the right, and one will always find a hot pot of coffee and tea.
Salem grew up the region and herded the family’s goats as a child. He served in the IDF as a tracker, and tells the story of the Bedouins, past and present, in perfect Hebrew. Salem will take you, on donkey back, to view the incredible ancient rock drawings of the area.

The Mitzpe Ramon Visitor Center

The Mitzpe Ramon Visitor Center offers interactive exhibits explaining the natural processes which led to the creation of the makhtesh (which is over 40km long at its widest point). It also offers interesting information about the plant and animal life who live in what might be assumed to be a barren and inhospitable region. Aside from the makhtesh, the Mitzpe Ramon Visitor Center also serves as a museum and memorial for Ilan Ramon, Israel’s first astronaut who died in 2003 when the Shuttle Columbia disintegrated when re-entering the earth’s atmosphere
