Mount Karkom

In the heart of the western Negev, lies the mysterious and beautiful Mount Karkom.

Presented in an unspoiled landscape, with its 847-meter-high limestone plateau slashed by dramatic ravines, Mount Karkom is believed to be the site of the biblical Mount Sinai mentioned in the Book of Exodus, as the place where Moses received the Ten Commandments.

As you walk down the eight-kilometre-long loop-trail, on the banks of the dry riverbed, you will discover two rows of standing stones and a rounded wall, reminiscent of the nomadic shrine of the type built by the Israelites. If you look closer; one can even spot twelve standing stones, believed by some to represent the twelve tribes of Israel.
