Death Valley is a mecca for geologists, and Dante's view is the mosque. Go here first to see the scale and grandeur. And, see the lowest and highest points in the continental US from one spot.

Stunning views of Death Valley and beautiful sunsets especially. Road up to the top is quite steep near the end--no trailers on that portion.

Extraordinary! Not to be missed, I guess most days are clear, but this vista needs a clear view. Amazingly beautiful, walk as far as you can at the viewpoint.

Words cannot describe. Unfortunately the lighting was not great. We were there in the evening around 4PM. Could see the basin and a beautiful view of the valley.

Takes a while to drive up here, but it is worth it. The view cannot be described in words. I notice some reviews talk about it being cold and windy. Yes it can be quite cold, be prepared. If you go early in the morning then it is likely to be less windy. We started from Furnace Creek before first... More

It is a long drive from Furnace creek up a very windy road. The view was ok. Zabraski point is closed. A better view can be had from the Shoshone look out behind the Inn at Furnace Creek

The vista from Dante's View is awesome. From the high point you can see the low point of the salt flats below. On our latest trip the site was closed for work of some kind, but it's a place we will definitely go back to. Easy to get to, road is steep with switchbacks at the top but well maintained.... More

We visited Death Valley on 12/26 and weren't prepared for the incredible cold and wind at Dante's View. The temperature at the top was about 34 with strong winds so there was some serious wind chill. The view is incredible but we had to keep it a short visit. We tried walking along the ridge, but it was just too... More

Visited Dante's View not long after sunrise on my birthday. Gentle breeze at my back. There was no sound. I tried my best to take in that scene, internalize it, appreciate it. The alien landscape enlivens the imagination as you form a spiritual connection with the ancestral heritage of the region. Breathtaking, gorgeous, life-affirming, unforgettable.
