Death Valley is aesthetically breathtaking with epic sand dunes and salt pans. It is also a very aptly named locale. Death Valley is located in the Mojave Desert in Eastern California. It lays between two mountain ranges and has a sub-tropical climate and holds the record for having the hottest temperature ever recorded on the planet earth.

Just how hot? That blazing hot temperature came in at an astounding 134 °F! This is certainly not a desert that you would ever want to attempt to cross or getting stranded in as the temperature in and of itself is hot enough to wear down the human body very quickly.
