  • This point of view is less common that others however found us the amazing place! There is a parking lot right down and just ride a few meters walk to reach the edge of the crater. If you have time, do is a little tour!

  • Ubehebe Crater is one of those places you have to see when you're in Death Valley. Who doesn't want to see a massive volcanic crater? It's hard to see the grand scale of the crater until you're actually there standing in front of it. You have the option to hike down to the bottom or hike around the rim. Whichever your choice, you won't be disappointed. Note, the hike to the bottom is steep and consists of loose rocks and gravel. So while it may be easy walking down the trail, going back up is a challenge. Bring water!
  • Closest I will probably ever get to experience what it's like to visit another planet. Makes me feel like I'm on Mars! We went in late December and it was very very windy- but in my opinion that only added to the atmosphere.
  • Not so hard to get there. I had a good hike going down/up the crater.
  • impressed !! really worth the d-tour !! watch out for the gusty winds
  • It's so surreal and alien like. You feel so small compared to the sheer size of the place.
