Death Valley, A Land of Extremes

Just about 140 miles away from the hustle and bustle of Las Vegas,

there is the place that supports very little life forms.

No birds chirping, no bugs buzzing…

You can experience absolute silence inside the Death Valley.

“It is North America’s driest and hottest spot (with fewer than two inches/five centimeters of rainfall annually and a record high of 134°F), and has the lowest elevation on the continent—282 feet below sea level. Even with its extremes, the park still receives nearly a million visitors each year.” – National Geographic

Death Valley has many colors and different terrains.

Not one place looks the same as the others.

Plan ahead to spend good amount of time to fully experience.

We spent around 4 hours in the park, but we barely covered the beginning of it.

Many interesting tour spots are only accessible by an off-road vehicle.

Winter is a good time to visit.

You will only need a light jacket to walk around.

If you are lucky to pick a day with less traffics,

you will have the entire horizon of desert to yourself.
