We will continue across the floor of the Machtesh to the summit of Mt. Gvanim which offers a stunning view of the entire Machtesh before descending to the the Gvanim Wadi and the shade of one of the Accacia trees for an explanation about the flora and fauna before continuing to the Sahronim spring and the nearby Nabatean ruins.
