Fabulous View

Definitely worth the drive. Amazing view of the valley. Parked the car at the top and took a twenty minute walk out to the point. Easy walk, nothing strenuous.

Lovely, but usually freezing even when hot in the Valley. It is a longer drive so if you have to skip something, this might be the one to skip. Go to Zabriski for sure.

Gorgeous view of the huge Death Valley, I could you could call it SINK. It is a scary road going up but all paved, with spring flowers in abundance. What a view!

A great first stop for a visit to Death Valley. You get amazing views and a great overview of the area. From the dramatic elevation changes, to the highly varied geology of the area you get a preview of all Death Valley has to offer from here. It was especially dramatic the day we visited as you could contrast the... More

Be prepared for a cooler temperature and a wind that comes up from the basin. The road out to the viewpoint is twisty and narrow at the last 1/4 mile but does not require a 4-wd. The wildflowers along this road were the best this week from anywhere in the park...not amazing but the best. You can see current mining... More

Dante's view is the must see attraction in Death Valley. You really see the expanse of the park, and the peak is right about Badwater Basin, so you really feel on top of the world. Head over there for sunset, and the views are just amazing. :)

A hard climb on our tandem but worth it! 6000 feet above the valley with snow covered mountains in the distance.

We really loved it, the view is simply beautiful. It is a bit of drive but definitely worth it! Do not miss it, just try to plan your visit - for example, combine it with Zabriskie point...

We were unexpectedly stunned by the beauty of Death Valley and Dante's View is exhibit 1 for that. You have to burn some time driving there, but don't pass this place up. We drove in from Vegas and arrived about 10:30am. Hardly any cars encountered on the drive in, and maybe a dozen were in the ample parking area. The... More
