“Dante Point must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

Drive is long and uphill but worth the effort to see all the salt flats below. Dante poing was windy and cold so make sure you have hat and coat if you plan to spend more then 1 hr on the hill. Must see in the park.

“A name with a view!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

We were on our way out of Death Valley when we left the main road to drive on this narrow road with a few hairpin bends to reach this famous view point. It's worth the approx 15 minute drive as the top suddenly opens out into this wonderful vista, showing the salt plains of Badwater stretching out below. You can walk a little but need good soles on your footwear. Great for a picnic and a few photographs. The toilet facilities are not wonderful and are back down the road a short way. Would be a wonderful place for sunrise or sunset views.
A grand finale to our time in Death Valley.

“Expansive Views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

The long climb up to Dante's View is worth the drive - - but bring a jacket, the temperature is dramatically lower than in in the valley far below, and winds can be an issue. Great views of the valley and mountain ranges!

“Sunrise - So Peaceful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

We arrived just before sunrise, one other couple there. We felt like we had it to ourselves, its so peaceful and beautiful - great photo opportunities watching the sum come up from behind the mountains. It takes about half an hour from Furnace Creek so get your timings right, we missed sunset the night before by 5 mins arghh
