Road trip: Las Vegas to Death Valley
Start your day fresh and ready for an adventure. Collect your RV from Travellers Autobarn Las Vegas and get ready to discover the famous Death Valley! Turn your A/C to the max and head onto the highway. The valley is a long, narrow basin, 282 feet below sea level, yet it is walled by high, steep mountains. This is how the extreme weather occurs and how it got the name Death Valley. This itinerary will outline some of the many magnificent wonders you will come across in Death Valley.
Keep in mind it is called Death Valley for a reason. Temperatures here can easily soar past 110 degrees Fahrenheit (43 degrees Celsius), especially in summer where it is known to consistently reach over 110 degrees every day! Make sure you are very well prepared. This includes:
- Water: One of the most essential things. You will need to drink at least 4 liters per day to replace loss from sweat. Drink more if you are active.
- Avoid the heat: Do not hike in low elevations when temperatures are scorching.
- Vehicle awareness: Stick to the road rules and stay on sealed roads.
