What a View!

This is 13 miles off the main road. The road is very steep and winding the last mile or two. You take the same road in as out. It is much cooler at the top which is great because... read more

This is 13 miles off the main road. The road is very steep and winding the last mile or two. You take the same road in as out. It is much cooler at the top which is great because you will definitely want to walk around some of the trails to check out the views. It is absolutely breathtaking! For... More

To reach this point, you have to drive a while from main road. But it's worth it. It was much cooler ( about 94 F) than the bottom (117 F) Standing at the edge and looking down from it, imagine how this valley is being created. Love to visit this place at night if possible.

A must when visiting Death Valley National Park. A drive up the hill to this awesome place during sunrise or sunset where you can do a little hiking to find your spot to relax and to soak in the view. Don't forget your camera.

Beautiful view of the entire valley. Good place to watch the sun rise or set. Can be very windy. The walk to the top of the peak is worth the effort.

Death valley was simply amazing - the landscapes are like nothing I've seen anywhere else on Earth, and if you are a nature-buff, you simply have to go here. I highly recommend it. But if you're not used to the heat, bring plenty of water :)

It's a ridiculously steep climb, especially the last three miles, but it's well worth the trip. We rode our bikes to the top from Furnace Creek, and the view was spectacular. Not to mention the noticeably cooler temps once you are at the top. The ride back down ain't too bad either!

We had thought we might skip this, but were happy that we did not. It was one of the more spectacular stops on our driving tour of Death Valley.

A quick day trip from Las Vegas Death Valley is a must. Dante's View is a quick hike from the parking lot and the views are breath taking.

If you have been in Badwater before you can see it now from up the hill if you take the extra tour of 15 miles beside the route, but you have a terrific view and you can also walk around the hills. There is a parking where we had a little picnic we brought with us. The temperature is much... More
