It is quite a trek to this location from the main road, but quite worth it. The road is nice, with some switchbacks & steep grade at the very top. The view into the badwater basin & Sierra Nevada mountains is awesome.

Don't forget to take the path at the end of the parking lot and hike to get the best views. The wind can be strong so dress prepared for it but truly a great way to get the feel of death valley.

Absolutely amazing view of almost the entire basin. It's possible to see the lowest point, Badwater, and the highest, Mount Whitney, on a good clear day! It can be very windy and cold, especially in the winter and early spring, so bring a jacket!

This is a great panoramic photo ops. of Badwater. Higher up in the park it's much less hot than sea level so it's another easy highlight to get to.

Looking at the layout of Death Valley this was the perfect place to start for our whistle-stop day trip on our way from Vegas up to Yosemite as it was our most Southerly place to visit there. Star Wars fans will recognise the view you get from here as the one that Luke Skywalker sees through his binoculars on his... More

not too far off the main road running through the park. In some parts it is quite steep so we were happy that we had rented a car rather than drive our 29ft RV. Suggest going there earlier in the day as the air is much clearer than when the heat builds up.

Death Valley has been on my list of visits for a long time, having visited the Hoover Dam we drove to Dante's Peak and when we got out of the car it was 110 degrees! Very very dry heat but the views are spectacular of the Death Valley basin.

This is definitely the go to place in Death Valley National Park. Quite easy to get there actually, about a 15-minute drive from Furnace Creek. Please note that only small automobiles are allowed to drive up since the roads are very narrow. The view is amazing, there really isn't much to say. You can walk around a bit but an... More

We've been stopping in Death Valley almost every December for a night or two. This was our first visit to Dante's View and it was truly incredible. The 13 mile drive to the parking lot was interesting and not too bad. Once at the parking lot, it's well worth the quick hike to the farthest spot to the south of... More
