Video: Trailer for Death Valley Trek – The First Unsupported Crossing of Death Valley on Foot

Back in October of 2015, Belgian adventurer Louis-Philippe Loncke set out to complete the first ever solo and unsupported expedition across Death Valley on foot. It was not an easy journey to say the least, and there were times when he wasn’t sure he’d make it, but after eight says in the wilderness, he was able to complete the crossing of one of the most notoriously difficult environments on the planet.

Now, we have a trailer for the film that will share his story with us. As you’ll see in the two-minute clip below, Loncke set out with a heavy pack that would contain the supplies – and water – that he’d need to survive. And he needed all of it, as the environment in Death Valley is about as unforgiving as they come. I can’t wait to see the full film.
