You want to get here early, but not too early or the sun will not be high enough to see the sights below. I'd recommend around 8-9 depending on the time of the year. It's worth the trip on the windy road. You will get great photo's and a nice perspective. You could walk a while or spend 10 minutes... More

We drove from Las Vegas on a day trip. The drive is very nice but the view from the top is amazing! It is more than one mile down to the floor of Death Valley. The expanse is impressive. It seems you can see forever. It's a plus that the weather is cooler there, too. Well worth the effort.

One of the most amazing views I have experienced in my life. You overlook the entire Valley and see very far on a clear day. You get a good sense of the geology and the basin. It is completely quiet up there, which is wonderful. I could have stayed there forever.

The view takes your breath away. If you have been to the lowest point at Badwater then travel to this view point it makes you appreciate the scale of Death Valley.

Visited Death Valley in Sept 2014 and made the effort most mornings to get up early and visit viewpoints to watch the sunrise. The pick was Dante's Point but you will need to set your alarm early as it's a long drive from Furnace Creek (allow 45 mins). But is it worth it - the view over the whole valley... More

A long uphill ride to a great view of the valley! We came across a car that had broken down from overheating. we stopped to offer help and found four German young men that had not made it to the top. We loaded them in the back seat of our SUV and took them to the top so they could... More

Wear light boots or good snickers, a good hat, take lots os water, I mean, LOT, no matter how's the weather. Have your gas tank filled and a nice camera. We came from Vegas, the road itself it's already an attraction! All that mountains are so beautiful and the draws made thought the times works as tapestries! The hugeness of... More

Put this in your list of places to visit. Photo opportunities abound! Amazing! Easy driving distance from Furnace Creek. We incorporated it with our day of visiting various points of interest in Death Valley.
