“Incredible”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

The views from Dantes peak take your breath away. Well worth the detour off the main road. Unfortunately the sheer scale and beauty cannot be captured on camera - it is something that has to be experienced.

“Dante Point must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

Drive is long and uphill but worth the effort to see all the salt flats below. Dante poing was windy and cold so make sure you have hat and coat if you plan to spend more then 1 hr on the hill. Must see in the park.

“A name with a view!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

We were on our way out of Death Valley when we left the main road to drive on this narrow road with a few hairpin bends to reach this famous view point. It's worth the approx 15 minute drive as the top suddenly opens out into this wonderful vista, showing the salt plains of Badwater stretching out below. You can walk a little but need good soles on your footwear. Great for a picnic and a few photographs. The toilet facilities are not wonderful and are back down the road a short way. Would be a wonderful place for sunrise or sunset views.
A grand finale to our time in Death Valley.

“Expansive Views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

The long climb up to Dante's View is worth the drive - - but bring a jacket, the temperature is dramatically lower than in in the valley far below, and winds can be an issue. Great views of the valley and mountain ranges!

Take some decent walking shoes, some water, a good camera and take some binoculars. The view is spectacular..
