Thirteen miles all uphill to a wonderful view, mainly looking southwest, west and northwest

You can also look east and see Mt Charleston, 11918 feet, about 90 air miles away, located between Las Vegas and Pahrump, part of the Spring mountains. Looking west you see... read more

You can also look east and see Mt Charleston, 11918 feet, about 90 air miles away, located between Las Vegas and Pahrump, part of the Spring mountains. Looking west you see Telescope Peak in the Panamint mountains, about 30 miles away on the other side of the "Valley of Death." It was named by pioneers who thought they had good... More

This is definitely worth the drive and is a Death Valley must see. The best viewing spot is a short hike from the parking lot to the rocky overlook point but once you get there you have an amazing view of the entire Badwater basin.

The view is worth the detour off the main highway and negotiating the winding road to the very top. It is a stunning viewpoint once you get up there. There are wheelchair accessible spaces to park though the parking area was by no means full. The only downside was the amount of wasps that were there something i did not... More

Dante's view is reached by a long road that ends at the view. The last quarter mile is very steep and winding and if you're in an RV you will have to park up and walk the final bit. As we were approaching a large group of Harley riders were coming down and one of them cover cooked the sharp... More

100% worth the drive. America's National Parks never cease to amaze and this is no different. Visit the Badwater Basin first. Once you get to the top of Dante's View you will be able to see where you were and it's mind blowing. You have to be at the basin first to appreciate the scale from above. The big bonus... More

You should get out of the car and hike the 10 minutes to the point. The view from there is great. It is hot but not as bad as it is down below.

Went to Death Valley in August and it was beautiful. Dante's View was incredible. The experience between the heat and the height of the view is something I've never experienced and recommend to everyone.

Be aware that the road is full of bends as you approach the peak. You need to be comfortable driving both towards the view point and back downhill. Once you reach the parking lot, a short walk brings you to the best photo ops points. The view is breathtaking - really worth the additional drive. A must if you are... More
