The view is astounding. there are lots of tourists, including myself, but try to forget the coaches and cars and try to imagine where you are and what you are viewing. This place is worth seeing.

An impressive view over the dune-like eroded yellow hills and the low plains in the distance. A bit of high clouds made the colors not as good as hoped but the sunset was spectacular and colourful. A very short but steep walk to the point makes access very easy. The 115 degree temperature in the day was a bit hard... More

Death Valley has to be one of the world's last great wildernesses. We drove over 250 miles within the National Park itself and the surrounding area, which is just as extreme, and still barely scratched the surface. One place we did make a point of visiting however was Zabriskie Point and what a worthwhile journey it was. In 111 degrees... More

Surreal and awe inspiring. Make this a must-stop on your auto tour of this National Park. Easily accessible, spacious parking lot, and several restrooms available.

Being in Death Valley and not seeing dramatic Zabriskie Point is like being in San Francisco and not seeing the Golden Gate Bridge or the Cable Cars. Zabriskie Point is one of nature’s special achievements. It’s as if some youthful ancient gods had had themselves a contest and then first took the rocks and sand and built a bizarre, mazelike...

Zabriskie Point is easily accessible, just a short walk uphill from a parking lot, there is a restroom there, and the views are wonderful.

We called at Zabriskie Point on our way back to Las Vegas, managed to walk to the peak to take some photographs, was not disappointed, fantastic views. However, only stopped a couple of minutes as temperature was 118f after drinking a bottle of water had to make our way back to car as the heat was overbearing.

Zabriskie point provides stunning views of Death Valley geology just hundreds of feet away from the main road, Highway 190. Very easy to visit even if you have just 15 minutes to spare on your way from Yosemite to Las Vegas for instance. There are also toilets on the parking lot. Recommended to take some water along even for a... More
