National Parks are what makes the US Great. And the NPS are not great "again" they are always and forever will be great. Support all public lands since they are managed for us, not big business, but for everyone.
Enjoy this lowest spot in the valley and admire the view for miles and miles.
One the eastern edge of the parking lot look up, you will find a sea level sign!

Amazing, beautiful and Lot more to explore. Expect to spend at least 2 days here if you want to see everything the park has to offer. We took lots pictures and had a great time. As always, nothing beats the beautiful mountains & dessert.

Superb destination. Completely different from other things. Do not forget to bring water with you, temperature was beyond 100 F in March!

This was the highlight of our trip. This was an existential experience. There's lots of things that I'm better for by just knowing about - the 'planet' Pluto, elephants, the Northern lights. I don't need to see or feel them. But I'm just better knowing they exist. Almost the same with Badwater Basin. But, not quite. The lowest place in the Western Hemisphere. Wow. That's mind blowing. One of the things that drew me to Death Valley (so did the fact that its the hottest place on earth. But I really didn't need to experience that)

Actually, Badwater Basin isn't much. Just a large flat plain that gets whiter as you near the center. There's a long walk from the parking lot to . . . well, to somewhere. The ground around gets whiter and at sometime its white all over. I guess that's when you're 'there'. Probably the most notable features are the mountains and the 'sign'. There are mountains all around. And big ones too. (An existential, well not really existential, I just like that word, fact is that the lowest place and the highest place in the continental US are only 80 miles from each other). The mountains and canyons are just amazing. And the sign. Another wow. High up (about 280 feet) on a hill behind the parking lot is a simple sign that says, "Sea Level". Incredible that we were standing over 280 feet below sea level. I was pretty amazed at it all.

Go see it. Not for the scenery. But for the experience.

This place is 282 ft BELOW SEA LEVEL. When you park your car, you will see the signboard on the almost mid of mountain. It’s salt everywhere in the basin like snow. Amazing view and place. While on the way to Badwater, you will signboards showing sea level 0 ft or below. Don’t forget to take sunscreen with you, it’s too much of tanning. And better not to visit in summer, it will be extremely hot. The highest recorded till date is 57 C ( 134.6 F ) sigh. Must visit place.
