The Mojave Desert is bordered by the Great Basin Desert to its north and the Sonoran Desert to its south and east. Topographical boundaries include the Tehachapi Mountains to the west, and the San Gabriel Mountains and San Bernardino Mountains to the south.

The Mojave Desert is often referred to as the “high desert”, in contrast to the “low desert”, the Sonoran Desert to the south.
