Death Valley & San Pedro de Atacama

As its name, Death Valley is a more extreme existence than Moon Valley.

Locals claim that it has not rained in 400 years. Because of the wide terrain of Moon Valley, people will not feel too nervous in it. But Death Valley is different. The clay here has been piled into hills over the long years of accumulation, undulating and deep on the surface. The road for humans to travel is narrow and curved, and the constriction and oppression of space can easily give people a kind of imprisonment. 


What’s more frightening is that when we stand next to the extremely dry clay walls of Death Valley, we can hear the popping sound of the soil walls due to thermal expansion and contraction! The sound seemed to be non-existent, as if it came from hell, especially shocking!

Corresponding to Moon Valley, Death Valley is also called Mars Valley because of its shape resembling Mars.

The central idea is: killing camels and offering sacrifices to gods.
