  Hatira Wadi
by Bregman

Another nice Negev Desert hike is Ein Yorqeam and Hatira Wadi. You can do it all (about 18 km) or just walk several hundreds metres to Ein Yorqeam and then back to the car.

To get here, take road 225 from Yerucham eastwards, through the Big Crater (Makhtesh Gadol). After 17 km, you should reach the junction with road number 206 where you should take a right turn. After about one km you'll see the sign for Mezad Yorqeam or Ein Yorqeam. On the way, do not forget to stop and admire the colourful sands right before the exit from the Big Crater.
