breath taking!

Stunning view, steep climb to the top but worth it for the amazing scenery. Bathrooms available below in parking lot.

Very easy to get to and from the parking area. More of a panorama than other points but not awesome. Don't cry if you miss it; I preferred the canyons and hiking up close to the rocks. Newly re-opened with an asphalt path to ascend. Glad we didn't attempt the hike from Golden Canyon...it would have exceeded our capabilities.

Zabriskie point is a nice vantage point to see a bit of the canyon and it's formations, from the parking to the vantage point is however quite steep and in the blazing heat of the sun this can quite a feat to accomplish.

We took a bus trip with Pleasurebent Tours from Tucson, Az and the outstanding guide, Bill Keyes. Mr. Keyes knowledge of geology and the history of the area and his descriptions of what we were seeing made the experience a memorable one. Death Valley is a fascinating park with many variables in terrain, rock formations, and minerals. You don't have... More

Colorful mud hills reflect light and shadows to create a stunning scene. Mecca for photographers. Easy to access from a main road through Death Valley.

There is absolutely no reason to miss this point. It is directly on the road, costs you practically no time and efforts and it is very beautiful! Save time and combine the visit to Dante's View, Badwater, Artist's drive...

The mounds look like something man-made. really amazing to think they are natural. I did not take the trail, but wish I had had the time to.

You'll get excellent pictures from this place. Now the surface of the road is new, so it is very easy to walk to the top to see the view that is spectacular, even anyone with slight walking difficulties can do that, even small children in buggies can be taken along.

to get the full effect make sure you get there at least 30 minutes before sunrise and watch the sun come up and slowly turn the mountains from gray to pink to orange - don't miss it!
