Death Valley National Park is a beautiful park in America. With its enormous salt flats, ancient rock formations, lush valleys, and mountains, Death Valley offer a diverse desert experience.

We offer a unique day trip option for those planning a trip to this park or who are already there.

This tour takes you to all the must-see places in the park. Some of them are Badwater, Zabriskie Point, Artist's Palette, Mesquite Flat Sand Dunes, and Golden Canyon. You will also enjoy a first-hand view of the most beautiful sunset on earth.

Badwater is one of the most popular and accessible places in Death Valley National Park. With a dramatic low elevation (-282 feet below sea level), Badwater is one of the weakest spots in North America. Situated at the bottom of Badwater Basin, you are surrounded by one of the most extensive salt flats in the world.

You will see how evaporation formed this place due to Lake Manly and other smaller lakes. When you get there, your guide will take you through a short explanation and then take you through the salt flats and point out fascinating formations caused by wind erosion, water erosion, and mineral deposits. Your knowledgeable guide will let you soak up the beauty of this unique sight and explain its formation over time.

Optional activity: You can get into the salt flats for a better experience. Note: It is a scorching place to stand, and the salt flats are full of dust, so please wear shoes with thick soles.

Moreover, this tour will take you to Artist's Palette. The colors in this area have been named by artist Albert Bierstadt who painted them in 1875 during one of his expeditions to Death Valley National Park. The colors are so beautiful that it is hard to believe they were created by nature.
