Makes you feel insignificant!! Amazing!

It actually took my breath away - and that wasn't simply due to the 5000 ft altitude!

The view is above Badwater. If you are short on time and it is a hazy day you may want to skip this view. If you are staying in Death Valley, visit it before or after Zabriskie Point. The air is cooler here, so if it is a hot day, it will give you a break from the heat. There... More

Spent a week in Death Valley and saw lots of amazing stuff. Didn't think this view was all that great.

Worth the drive up, road not as bad as I feared - air gets cooler so high up which was a nice break from the heat. Amazing to look out over bad water where we had been earlier that morning.

Wonderful to take the drive down to Dante's View, I would plan it to be before and/or after Zabriskie Point.

This is another Death Valley side trip. The view is worth the trip. If you are not from the Southwest part of the US, Death Valley is a must see.

The best part about Dante's View is leaving the viewpoint and heading out on the trail. You can walk for as long or as little as you want, including a peak a couple miles away. It's a great ridge hike (up and down) with panoramic views and no people.

You need to park and walk to the southwest about a quarter of a mile. Great sunset shots.

Dante's view is above 5000 feet. It gives a stunning bird's view of DVNP. When going during winter time, it can be windy and cold at the top of the mountain. The nicest part is that you can just drive all the way to the view point - no hard physical hike needed
