The drive is steep and full of curves. The view? Wow! Spend some time here really understanding that Death Valley is in fact a valley. And when there is rain and minerals wash down from the surrounding mountains there is no where for it to go. Well worth you time to see the lowest spot in the US from above.

Early morning or late evening is excellent time to sit on top of the Dante's view to look at the lowest and highest elevation points in lower 48 at the same time. Ignore all these selfie-crazy crowd around you and soak in the beauty of rugged and arid place.

Probably my favorite spot in Death Valley. The view is spectacular! We stopped on way into the valley and it was a perfect introduction to the area.

It's an easy drive up here and there are walks to do when you get here. Even without walking you get to see over the salt basin in the valley, it's a surprising 5,000ft high so a great view. Keep an eye out for the alluvial fans on in the valley, you'll see these if you visit Badwater Basin. Also... More

It's an easy drive up a winding and sometimes steep road, however the road is good and sealed. There are toilets there as well. You can drive all the way to the top parking lot and the views are spectacular. If you want to you can walk up a few hills nearby, however there really is no need. It's great... More

This is one of my favorite place. I strongly do this if you go to Death Valley. I really mean it. It took 45 minutes from visitor center and combine with Zabriskie Point and 20 Mule Team (closed at the moment). We didn't have the privilege to watch the sunset and sunrise. Even you don't have time to hike, just... More

This is a great spot to see sunrise. A bit of a drive to get there, but totally worth the trip. Depending on the time of year, it is very peaceful and a lot of fun to take a coffee thermos and breakfast to enjoy while watching the sunrise.

The view is incredible. It was very windy even though the rest of the park wasnt so be prepared. We hiked out pretty far but occasionally wind gusts make you feel like you will fall. The view is incredible if you dont hike so you should go no matter what. We were there very early in the morning. We rented... More

We drove up to Dante's view quite early. It was January, so it was very chilly up there! There are some great views, if it is clear, and a signpost to tell you where everything is.
