15 of Israel's environmental wonders
Israel's varied climate and intriguing geology has shaped breathtaking formations across the country.
Located amid the beautiful mountains of northern Israel, Lake Ram is an example of the beauty that can come from destruction.
Formed by the collapse of a volcano caused by an explosion of super hot water, Lake Ram is a kind of crater lake called a maar.
Local legend points to a different origin of the lake, however: an old myth says it's the tear-filled eye of a woman whose husband no longer loved her.
