Am sure this place has a great view, but sadly on the one day I was there (August 4th, rained that day..) the mountain was in the clouds and visibility was absolutely zero. A visibility sign at the turn of of the highway might be a good idea, would have saved me an hour of driving.

By pure luck we arrived at Dante's View an hour before sunset. I can honestly say (at this time of day) this was the most spectacular sight I have ever seen in my life. Take my word for it - spend a good hour there soaking in the surroundings; it's like being on another planet.

Drove through Death Valley between Las Vegas and Yosemite staying at Furnace Creek Ranch. Was worth the drive up there so see the breath taking views.

The valley floor at Death Valley the day we visited was at 122*f in the middle of the day! I decided after reading previous trip advisor posts that I wanted to watch the sunset from Dainties view. I'm glad I did, the sunset it's self was a little underwhelming but it's an incredible place to look out over the park... More

It's extremely hot, almost unbearable in summer, but the view is worth a stop (but wouldn't recommend a special trip there). We were driving from Vegas to to Bishop through Death Valley NP. Great desert-like views.

It was exceptionally hot in Death Valley at the end of July - although up at Dantes view it was noticeably cooler. Don't miss this spectacular view of the valley. A great beginning, or end (depending on direction of travel!) to your visit.

This isn't he highest peak in the park, but it was pretty high. The 365 degree view was spectacular. It was pretty awesome to stand on the peak and look down across the southern Death Valley basin (the salt flats on the basin floor were 282 feet below sea level). I think the peak stands at 5476 feet, so the... More

The drive up there is good. It's a bit cooler when you get up there, but it's still hot. It gives you a good all round view of the valley.

Dante's view is incredible for many reasons. There is the obvious and stunning vista on offer - a 360 degree panoramic view incorporating the valley itself, the Panamint and Sierra Nevada Ranges on the west side and the magnificent backdrop of endless Canyon Ranges as you look east over the state of Nevada. The view is accessible to anyone with... More

Spent a hour on this overlook in what was honestly one of the coldest moments of my life…and it was already April…yet we couldn’t tear ourselves away. Worth the drive and short trail walk to get there. Take a camera and the heaviest jacket you own. We got there a sunset and were treated to a lovely scene.
