Camel Mountain - viewpoint of the crater and Mitzpe Ramon
Camel Mountain is a beautiful viewpoint on the edge of the Ramon Crater. It is named after its side, which resembles a camel's hump and head.
From the top of Camel Mountain (Har Gamal), which is 857 meters above sea level, you can enjoy the beauty of the Ramon Crater and watch the sunrise or sunset. We recommend equipping yourself with warm clothes due to the strong wind blowing in the mountain.
Camel Mountain is part of the Albert Katz Promenade. You can climb it as part of the promenade trip.
