Mount Karkom some belive as the Biblical Mount Sinai. Notice: You can reach the cache only in Weekends or in Israeli holidays as the mountain is in a military area. Additionally best way to get there is by 4X4 and then walking up the mountain
Mount Karkom ("Mountain of Saffron", also called Jabal Ideid) is a mountain in the southwest Negev desert in Israel, half way between Petra and Kadesh Barnea. On the basis that the Israelites traveled across the Sinai Peninsula towards Petra in a fairly straight line, a number of scholars have contemplated the possibility of Mount Karkom being the Biblical Mount Sinai. Following this theory, Emmanuel Anati excavated at the mountain, and discovered that it was a major Paleolithic cult centre, with the surrounding plateau covered with shrines, altars, stone circles, stone pillars, and over 40,000 rock engravings
The cache it self is a container hidden near one of the rock art right beside the blue trail going up the mountain.
