Despite being one of the driest, hottest, and lowest places in the United States, Death Valley National Park is actually not as ominous as it sounds. Comprising otherworldly landscapes—from volcanic hills and snowcapped mountains to sand dunes and badlands—the area is also home to much wildlife, including bighorn sheep, desert tortoises, and jackrabbits.

Hot hot hot - great day out!
Great experience. A must do in my book and I was well cared for on one of the hottest days in August. The company moved the itinerary around so we would not be out and about at the hottest points of the day and the hydration kept on coming. Very knowledgable guide. Lovely touches for breakfast and lunch - have done longer days when nothing was provided. Van was clean and very comfy with excellent air-con.

A must see before your time is up!
Spent a great day experiencing wonderful sights. A pleasant journey, with plenty of breaks. The Death Valley is beautiful and inspiring. Our friendly guide was Leo looked after us very well with humour and knowledge. You will learn, for example, how the 'Devil's Golf Course' got its name.

A:Travelers generally spend one or two days in Death Valley—even though it's the fifth-largest national park in the US. A couple of days is usually enough time to see many of the park's highlights as well as some off the beaten path spots. An overnight stay also allows you to do some stargazing.

A:Visit in any season except summer, although some travelers visit in the hottest months to witness the extreme heat. Spring, fall, and winter (November–March) are the recommended seasons. Depending on winter rainfall, the desert can bloom with wildflowers, usually peaking in late March to early April, which makes springtime popular.
Q:How long is the drive through Death Valley National Park?
A:From where you enter the park (Death Valley Junction) it’s a 100-mile (161-kilometer) drive along CA-190 through the valley, which takes about two hours. Along the way, you'll pass Mt. Perry, Funeral Mountains Wilderness, Zabriskie Point, and Furnace Creek. It’s easy to navigate and can be completed in a day.
Q:Are there animals in Death Valley?
A:Yes. Animals that can withstand the heat and lack of water such as bighorn sheep, kangaroo rats, jackrabbits, and desert tortoises live in Death Valley. Many of the animals like coyotes are also nocturnal—resting in the day, active at night. Coyotes, ravens, roadrunners, ground squirrels, and lizards are commonly seen.
Q:How do I prepare for Death Valley National Park?
A:Bring the usual hiking gear, plus a sun hat, sunglasses, jacket, GPS device, food, and first-aid kit. Drink one gallon of water per day. Start with a full gas tank and consider bringing a filled canister, especially if going off the beaten path. Gas is available inside the park.
Q:Do you need bug spray in Death Valley National Park?
A:Yes. Bring insect repellent and consider wearing a long-sleeved shirt and pants to protect yourself from bites. Bugs typically come out in the morning and as the sun sets. They can be a big nuisance, which most travelers don’t expect. The Devil’s Golf Course is an area known for insects.
