Full description
Leaving Eilat, travel southwest to a camel ranch between the mountains. Begin with a moderate 45-minute hike along a wadi scattered with Acacia trees. After a short break, start the ascent to the summit of Mount Zefahot, a mild hour-long circular climb. Upon reaching the summit, enjoy a short break and take in the view. From the mountain peak, the Gulf of Aqaba appears in its full glory, surrounded on all sides by the towering reddish-granite desert mountains, a quadripoint of four countries, Israel, Egypt, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia.

The sun will start setting while atop of summit, making the view even more majestic, as the whole desert bathes in red and purple hues. Next, begin the 30-minute descent from the mountain, directly to the shore of the gulf. All along the way down, the sky and mountains continue changing colors as the sun sets over the desert.

Upon arrival at the beach, take some free time to bathe in the cool waters of the Red Sea, where colorful fish are swimming at immediate proximity to the shoreline. Enjoy the underwater beauty of the Red Sea for as long as you wish, and return to using public transportation whenever you are ready.
