Spectacular vistas await! This wonderful Death Valley adventure explores both the magic of wilderness camping and the thrill of hiking a truly magnificent peak. Our Telescope Peak Adventure is an incredible journey into Death Valley’s rugged Panamint Mountains. Unlike typical mountain ranges, the Panamints hide little of their splendor behind obstructionist foothills, making for an epically dramatic skyline that hovers over the valley floor – some 10,000 feet below. Over four incredible days, we’ll acclimatize to the altitude contrast of Death Valley while exploring the best of the Panamints before summiting two-mile-high Telescope peak. Enjoy two nights of comfortable basecamping before our summit attempt. For our culminating activity, we’ll make a two-day hike up Telescope Peak also involving one incredible evening in the high, backcountry wilderness.

TRAVEL TO LAS VEGAS
Las Vegas’ McCarran Airport is one of the most easily accessed destinations in the country. Many major cities in the United States and internationally offer direct flights into Las Vegas. A company named Airline Shuttle (1-888-554-1156) can help you with economic transport to most hotels. Taxi cabs run about $40 to downtown, and the city is also Uber- and Lyft-friendly.
UTAH SALES TAX
Utah is the only state we are based in that charges sales tax to outfitters and guides. The sales tax is based on the St. George, UT municipality rates, which are adjusted occasionally but are in the 6-7% range. For all of our hiking and backpacking tours that originate from our St. George, Utah base (Utah trips and Death Valley trips), the sales tax will be applied automatically to your payments. Feel free to call us at 1-800-715-HIKE (4453) with any questions!
