Israel & the Palestinian Territories - The Negev (Chapter)
This is the Negev chapter from Lonely Planet’s Israel guidebook.
Archaeological sites aren’t the only diversions on offer in this part of the country; the region near Makhtesh Ramon is now marketed as a wine route and is a popular weekend getaway for city slickers, and there are hikes, camel treks and 4WD desert drives aplenty. Put simply, this ma-jestic southern desert region is one of the country’s greatest attractions – don’t miss it.
