It has wonderful views and many different shapes and colours of the rocks. There is a good car park near by with a toilet. There is little climbe up to the top of the hill. It is accessable for the disabled, even wheelchairs. Well worth stopping here

Road work until mid to late April. Go there when it reopens, you'll be glad you did. Bring water. Let me babble on some more, seems like zabiskie had something to do with film or Borax, let me know.

Apparently some walls were falling down and a hazard so this is closed indefinitely for repairs as of February 14. Check with the visitor center to see if it's open.

Weird geology at your feet, plus a great view in all directions. An especially attractive spot at sunset.

Big disappointment...the one attraction in the park we'd listed as "must see" is presently closed for construction. This was not on the main park website so I recommend you call the Visitor Center if this is your goal. My recollection is the closure will be a couple of months.

We have enjoyed a great sunrise there. I definitely recommend not ommiting this location if you are visiting the national park. We were there in August, so temperatures were higher and the place was not overcrowded.

This is a sight that puzzles many people. How can the rocks have such different colours? The great heat does not make it any easier to guess.

Sunset at Zabriski point.....it is not of this world. It could be on another planet. But keep everything well fixed. I lost my lenscover in the strong warm wind. Lucky I ran downhill and could catch it just before it was gone forever.

Death Valley is one of the best things of Nevada/California. Loved this place. Was hot as hell, but awesome.
