We drove here from Vegas - so Dante's view was right on our way into the park. We left at about 5am to get up here around 7am for the sunrise. It was very beautiful and, at over 5,000 feet above the valley below, you can see for many miles. I would've liked to seen the sunrise start at the... More

Saw the sunset from this remarkable place and it was breathtaking! Be sure to check when sunset is and leave time to wait after the sun actually sets to see the colourful sky.

Yes, it seems a long way out of the way when you first arrive, but IT IS A MUST! Overwhelming, the view is just spectacular. Really need to view Death Valley from here to understand the breadth and width of the spectacular natural phenomenon. Definitely worth the effort, it truly is breathtaking!

A long drive to go there and a lot of tourists. But absolutely worth it. The only and the best overview of central Death Valley.

Long windy road to the top for panoramic, almost 360 degree views of the whole valley. You feel like you're going to the end of the earth. Worth getting there at least a half hour before sunset and staying for a half hour afterwards. There's a few nice short hikes (< 10 min each) that take you to different view... More

Well worth the 26 mile drive roundtrip. A great way to start Death Valley. It gives a great view of the valley.

You must not drive past this point, make the time and effort to go and see the view. We got there early to beat the crowds.

Starting late, we raced with a convertible sports car to the top, trying to catch the sun going down. And we did catch it...only to discover one of the most beautiful sunsets we're ever seen. This IS one of the places in the world worth visiting from VERY far away!

This was our first stop inside the park, and it was a great beginning to a great tour. Once atop the view point, you'll be much cooler than other areas of the park, as you look out to see clear across the basin to the other side, with badwater right below you. It's amazing how far you can see, and... More

Dantes view has to be seen to be believed. not far from Furnace Creek. easy paved road to get to it so you dont need a 4x4. you pay a small fee to enter park which covers all the attractions. if you can plan your trip to be at dantes view either sunrise or sunset i believe its worth it.... More
