You begin to wonder if the 15 miles is worth but wait till you get to the top....

Seems like a long 15 miles drive through the mountains but the views from the top looking the length of the valley are more than soectacular very much well worth the visit

fabulous overview of the entire valley. Very steep twisty road to the top, so if you are driving a rental car, make sure you are happy with how it works and can drive it accurately. I suggest coming a bit earlier than people suggest (eg 3pm instead of 4pm) when the crowds are a bit lighter.

It won't take too long to drive up to the peak. The sight is quite breathtaking, and I think it will be phenemenon if you go here at the right time (sunsent or sunrise). It's a little bit windy.

Absolutely astonishing view of the valley. This point is a must see for every visitor of Death Valley. Unfortunately we were too late to still catch it at sunset (supposedly the nicest time), but we were there at sunrise, still offering a nice effect (see picture). You can see Bad Water from here (way below you). About 35-40 min drive... More

Go during super hot afternoons to cool off above 5,000 feet and soak up the thrilling views into the valley and surrounding peaks

Standing on top of Dante’s view was awe inspiring! I felt so amazing up there. The view was beyond words! Not even photos do it justice, hence the reason I’m not adding any. I suggest you go to Vegas, rent a convertible sports car and drive the 2.5 hours to Death Valley, and climb up to Dante’s view yourself.

Best view in Death Valley. Not much else to say really. It's a long, paved and winding road to get there but it's worth it. There is a single bathroom just a half mile before the point.
