Badwater, Death Valley National Park

Inspirock Rating:
4.6/5 based on 1,600+ reviews on the web
The lowest point in North America, 86 m (282 ft) below sea level, Badwater is a huge, desolate salt flat. Look up to see a sign marking sea level high above you on the side of a cliff. Bring plenty of water with you, and limit your time in the sun during midday. A visit to Badwater represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Death Valley National Park vacation builder to plot your vacation.

  • Under intense heat, we discovered this picturesque place. Long market. Confusing landscape.

  • Only once to be below sea level, this is worth a visit. It is hot very hot, but it's worth something, run on the salt sea. The view is fascinating. It is somewhere in the nowhere.

  • Impressive advance of salt and almost lunar landscape. Feels tiny in the middle of this superb landscape step not to be missed when visiting the Valley of death predict CAP and sunglasses because it hit hard enough (35 degrees mid October)
