“Sunrise - So Peaceful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

We arrived just before sunrise, one other couple there. We felt like we had it to ourselves, its so peaceful and beautiful - great photo opportunities watching the sum come up from behind the mountains. It takes about half an hour from Furnace Creek so get your timings right, we missed sunset the night before by 5 mins arghh

“Great views...show DV at it's most impressive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

When you stand around 5000 ft above Death Valley, that's when you can get an real good impression on how big, vast and extreme it is! You get this & more at Dante's View! About 18 miles or so from Furnace Creek Ranch, but everything in Death Valley is a pretty long drive! It's worth it though! And for bonus points, it's about 20f cooler up here than the valley floor!!

“Dante's View - a must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

The access road is windind & steep in places, but the view is amazing! This is a must see for anyone with the time. Its only a short ride from Furnace Creek, so is ideal if on the way to or from the area. One word of advice, take plenty of water. The view from the car park is spectacular enough, but there are a couple of walks along the ridgeline over uneven ground. Not for the faint hearted. Will definately do again next time in DV!

“Staggering Views Of Death Valley's Saltpan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

When we went there was a perfect sky but 50-80mph wind gusts. It was freezing but exhilarating. The views - walk the cliff-top path to the end, as the view changes - are awesome. Bear in mind that there is a size/weight / RV restriction on the winding approach road.

“Breathtaking view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

It's a long journey but the views are breathtaking! Don't forget your camera!! We visited here and Badwater within a couple of hours - a lot of driving but would def recommend.
