The Darom Adom festival is a potent reminder that southern Israel is one of the most beautiful places to visit.

Nature paints the Negev bright red

 

Carpets of red anemones (known as kalanyot in Hebrew) cover the Negev desert of Israel every spring.

To celebrate this breathtaking sight, the annual "Darom Adom" (The Red South) Festival takes place during the months of January/February.

Now in its 11th year, the festival is a potent reminder that southern Israel is one of the most beautiful places to visit.
