Why We Love It

Death Valley, the lowest and hottest area in the U.S., is contained within the 3.4 million acres that make up Death Valley National Park. Located within a Biosphere Reserve, the extreme desert environment is known for Badwater Basin (the lowest point in the U.S.), salt pans, snow-capped mountains, sand dunes, rugged canyons and mostly nocturnal wildlife. As a leave-no-trace destination, everything brought in must come out.
