The Funeral Mountains Wilderness is a 25,707-acre property on the southeast side of Death Valley National Park. The Amargosa Desert and State of Nevada drop off to the southeast.

In spite of the somber name, the Funeral Mountains are marked by colorful bands of rugged limestone.

Elevations within the wilderness range from a low of about 2,200 feet to the summit of Bat Mountain (4.950 feet). The Funeral Mountans extend into Death Valley National Park where their high point is Pyramid Peak at almost 7,000 feet.
