Take an epic picture at Badwater Basin

Badwater Basin in Death Valley National Park is the lowest point in North America, with an elevation of 282 ft beneath sea level.

You can enjoy the view from your vehicle during the summer, or cooler months, or take a walk out onto the salt flat.

This is a short 1/4 mile (400 m) walk that brings you to the salt polygons that Death Valley is famous for. These large salt formations, in the shape of a large polygon, form a unique landscape that appears to stretch on forever.

Badwater Basin is located 30 minutes south of the Furnace Creek Visitor Center. If you are visiting in the summer the remember that you will mostly be staying in your vehicle and enjoying the view of the salt flat. We do not recommend being outside of your airconditioned vehicle for longer than 15 minutes.
