Machtesh Ramon Cliff, Israel
Embraced by the Mediterranean Sea on its west, Israel may primarily cater to religious tourism, but its one-of-a-kind geography, mild climate, historical sites, beaches and archeological ruins play a huge part in its tourism industry.
Nonetheless, apart from allotting long periods of your time in its capital, Jerusalem, or spending the majority of your travel time touring the many museums dotting this Middle Eastern country, you could instead get a resolutely fearless escapade by checking out the 40-kilometer-long Machtesh Ramon.
John McShane of the Daily Mail UK Travel even skipped Jerusalem and visited this crater-like landform himself (“Israel for the Intrepid: Deserts, Dust and Foodie Delight on a Break beyond Jerusalem”). While he had also checked out Rosh Pinna, where he noticed that there is a “European feel that infuses this small village”, his adventure really started when he visited Ramon Crater.
Here’s a snippet of his recent trip to this travel attraction in Israel:
I am standing outside the small town of Mitzpe Ramon – in Israel’s Negev Desert – listening to my Kenya-born guide Adam Sela as he explains the wonders of this arid region. Not least, he talks of the remarkable creatures that live in an area which, at first glimpse, might seem devoid of any wildlife at all… But look closely and you may spot herds of onager – small Asian wild horses, resembling beige zebras, which have been successfully re-introduced to the desert in recent years after being transported from Iran. There are ibex and gazelles, and numerous birds, many of them migratory, but some which are quite happy to spend the whole year in this harsh environment.

Ever since a fire burned down the Sutro Baths to its ruins in mid 1900s, it became an abandoned private property in San Francisco and was later on added to the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. The remnants of this huge pool complex are evidence of a large wood, iron, glass and toughened concrete building that used to be a secret gem in a modest sea inlet now stands in stark beauty after all these years.
Get a more vivid picture of the Sutro Baths Ruins in Barton Bishoff’s clip, in which he shares,
Wealthy entrepreneur and former mayor of San Francisco (1894-1896), Adolph Sutro built the baths in the 1890's. It was the first and biggest water park in the world. A concert hall seating 8,000, 7 swimming pools of all different temperatures, 2 million gallons of water, and later, an ice skating rink all resided in this luxurious palace replete with staircases, 500 rooms, and palm trees. It burned down in 1966. This is what stands today.
