You can count the number of times it rains in the Arava in a year on one hand, however when it rains it usually pours and then the big celebration begins. The hard soil of the desert doesn’t absorb the rain water easily and so little creeks begin to form, turning into rivers. The ground and rocks change colours – from tired yellow to every tone between white and brown. This colourful celebration is empowered by the sounds and smells of water all around and the experience is like no other.
