Death Valley is located in California, USA. It comprises much of the Death Valley National Park, with the Sylvania Mountains forming its northern boundaries and the Owlshead Mountains bordering it to the south.
The valley is the main feature of the Mojave and Colorado Deserts Biosphere Reserve, with the Sierra Nevada mountain range in the north-west and the Amargosa River flowing through the region. It has the lowest elevation in North America at –90 m.
Death Valley is one of the hottest places on earth, with daytime temperatures as high as 54°C in the summer months. Although the valley receives less than 50 mm of rain in a year, it still gets flooded during the monsoon owing to the weak soil being unable to absorb the water.
The region has been inhabited by the Timbisha tribe for almost the whole of the last millennium.

Reviews Death Valley

Overall Guide : Badwater, a small spring-fed water body near the main road, is the lowest point in the North American continent. The site is the starting point of the Badwater Ultramarathon (said to be the world’s toughest foot race) which takes place... more in July and consists of a 215 km course ending at Mount Whitney, the highest point in the contiguous United States. One can observe various colours of rock at the Artist’s Palette which lies on the face of the Black Mountains. The Mesquite Sand Dunes was the setting for several Hollywood films including scenes from the Star Wars series. The nearby Star Dune is actually shaped like a starfish! From Furnace Creek (the headquarters of Death Valley National Park), one can head over to the Racetrack Playa (a seasonal dry lake) in the Panamint Mountains. The Playa is famed for its Sailing Stones (rocks which actually seem to move across the surface).

Overall Guide : Amazing Place. Full of colour. Fantastic searing heat, makes you feel alive, (not for the average Brit)! Excellent accommodation, two excellent restaurants. Car essential to get around the Valley Because it covers such a large area, you can more often... more than not be completely alone - no crowds.
Not to be missed The Desert area , Badwater , Dantes Point
