The range of colour on display at this vista point is excellent and makes the stop something you shouldn't miss. It's hard to capture it in a camera but I took some panorama shots and hope they turn out half as good as the view was in person

I went to Zabriskie in the afternoon. Temperature was 125°F & there was a hot breeze. After a short walk, you are treated with amazing views. It's a popular place but because of the heat, most people leave after taking a couple of pictures. Whenever I visit death valley, I stop at this place.

The best time to visit Zabriskie point is at Sunset. During the day there are too many tourist buses so nights are best. Park in the car park and walk up the hill. The rock colours change as quick as the sun moves

While surely not the most spectacular of views within DV, ZP serves as a great introduction to those who enter the park via 190. In my view, it's a great way to kick off a visit. When I first visited DV many, many years ago, I stopped here first and got my initial WOW. Recommended

The colors at Zabriskie Point are gorgeous. We went during sunset and the landscape colors kept changing. We were told sunrise is just as beautiful.

This is rated as one of the best scenic attractions in Death Valley. While it is not Yosemite Valley, it is definitely worth a 15 minute stop.

Well worth the walk for the view. I could feel the heat burning my feet through my shoes but it was worth it for the view. If you like stargazing go here at night it is fabulous. (Although the moths are a bit annoying)

If you have time, then why not? I shared my experience in the car park toilet with a cute kangaroo rat. Views good but will you get better.

Five minute walk from parking to the point. Nice stop for pictures and to take in the scenery. Not anywhere as exciting as dantes Point, But the Point is is right off the main road & a short drive east of the Visitors Center. Worth a short stop.

We paid a visit on June 20, 2016, which just happened to be one of the hottest days ever at the park. The temperature was approaching 120F right at noon when we visited Zabriskie Point, and it went higher as the day went on. Although it was too hot to really stay out long and enjoy the scenery, you can't... More
