One of the most popular attractions in Death Valley is Badwater Basin, which is a salt drainage basin that’s located in Death Valley National Park.

Other than the scenery, you can do a bit of hiking here. Do the entire walk down to the basin though, otherwise you won’t have the chance to see the salt flats up-close and personal. Trust us when we say Badwater Basin should be one of the first places you visit in Death Valley.
