“Out of this world...”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

This place looks like it should not belong to this earth... If you are amazed by the formations alongside the highway, make sure you stop at the Zabriskie Point. Climb to the very top and enjoy the view. It tends to be quite windy there and wind throwing grains of sand in your face could be quite painful but you will not regret this minor inconvenience. Dunes and hills in all shades of yellow and orange with blue sky and occasional pure white cloud overhead are making picturesque views.

“Cool views”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

The different colors and rock formations are cool and worth the small hike up there. You can see why they filmed star wars here and in other places in the park

“The power of nature”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

Death Valley is truly one of the wonders of the natural world. It is incredibly beautiful and unique. Zabriskie Point is one of those must see attractions. In reality, the view simply comprises the effect of nature over thousands of years - petrified sand and erosion. But the result is a landscape of strange shapes and magnificent colours. It is a quite humbling experience to look down on the Valley floor from this vantage point. Well worth a visit. The images will remain with you.

“pick of the places”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

"absolute must do". Ideal place to watch the setting sun. We did Dante's view first and then made our way to here. we were a tad bit late as the sun was just about to set and it was cloudy.
