Three Great Spots in Ramon Crater

Updated: Oct 2, 2022

A great easy trip for the whole family, consisting of short walks at three beautiful spots in the area.

๐Ÿ“ŒHaminsara: This is a hill around which you can see a rare geological phenomenon: rocks that look like tree trunks sawn in a carpentry shop. These are the sawmills.

A short floating path (250 m) made of recycled material leads to the top of the hill - this is a short walk in the fantastic view next to the prisms. The trail is dedicated to a geologist named Gadi Eran, who fell in the First Lebanon War.

๐Ÿ“ŒWind, stone and water: A short drive from the sawmill will take you to a quarry with colored sands.

Parents love to come there with small children to fill bottles in the sand. The sands there range from yellow-brown to something between brown and light purple. It is a beauty of activity for children when it is not too hot. Do not forget to bring empty and dry bottles, a spoon, wipes for cleaning (and bless me later on these tips ... ๐Ÿ˜„).

๐Ÿ“ŒFrom there, I suggest continuing a bit of the journey to the ammonite wall.

It is a part of a massive rock on which fossils of marine invertebrates can be seen. Inside the stone, you see a kind of challah of different sizes, like giant snails, and it's stunning.

It is a short hike from the car to the wall.

In the area, you will also find the stunning Ramon Crater Colors National Park
