This was our first stop in Death Valley and definitely set the bar high for the rest of our trip. The road driving to the top is an experience in itself! The view is amazing and gives you a grasp of what adventures await you in the rest of the park.

Our last stop in Grand Canyon during sunset. 100% recommended view. Get the entire view of the badwater basin and the hills surrounding Death Valley. Also get a chance to see different colors from the different mountain ranges. Must visit in Death Valley.

While driving there you pass beautiful sights of the mountain chains, color changes. One of the best places to visit - a must I'd say. You see almost all Badwater part of Death Valley from this point. Get some warm clothes as it is cold there.

High above Badwater, Dante's View is a drive worth making to see the spectacular Death Valley scenery. It's also a good hike to get to some better vantage points than from the parking area. In late November, it can get cold with some chilly winds, but was worth the effort.

This is a must see place. 13 miles one way on top of the mountain (steep uphill last 1/8 mile) gives you the best top view of Badwater basin which is 282 feet below sea level. It can be very hot at the basin and very windy and cold at Dante's view. The road is good - drivable in any... More

Worth the drive to the top of death valley NP to visit Dante's view. The drive was quite long but we were greeted with very clear views of the desert land far and wide.

This location is directly above Bad Water basin which is 282 feet below sea level - and Dante's view is 5,475 fee above sea level. Perched atop the Black Mountains at 5,475 feet, Dante's view is tall and wide. Both of Death Valley's elevation extremes, 282 feet below sea level and 11,049 feet above, can be seen in a single...

The overlook is well worth the drive. Gives a great sense of the enormity of death valley. Morning is best so sun is behind you.
