Media related to Makhteshim, a type of geological landform regarded to be unique to the Negev desert of Israel and the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt. Although commonly regarded to be "craters", these structures are more accurately described as erosion cirques. A makhtesh has steep walls of resistant rock surrounding a deep closed valley which is usually drained by a single wadi. The valleys have limited vegetation and soil, containing a variety of different colored rocks and a diverse fauna and flora which has been protected and preserved over millions of years. The best known makhtesh is Makhtesh Ramon of Israel's Negev desert.
