Sunrise Photo-op

Join the line-up of photographers at sunrise. Beautiful place at any time of day but the morning light adds some interesting hues.

Most accessible and enjoyable location to view the complex geological formations and with the right timing to view sunrise and sunset in Death Valley. A short hike up from the car park and a very easy paved walkway takes you to a vista platform overlooking Badlands, canyons and Death Valley beyond. Across the valley the mountain range with snow capped... More

An easy drive then short walk, this is well worth the effort.Like most things in the Valley, I recommend sunrise or sunset for the best pictures, but beautiful all day long.

Wow! From the parking lot, you do not need to go far up the slope for a great view. If you do not plan on hiking any of the narrow canyons in Death Valley then Zabriskie Point is the place to stop for pictures.

A short hike up a fairly steep hill will bring you to the best view in the valley. The climb to the very top is not for the deconditioned.

Easy climb from the parking lot to the top to get a good view of the landscape. If you hike in from there, and are afraid of heights, don't take the first right hand turn up the hill. My wife got quite scared.

Zabriskie Point in Death Valley National Park shows the nature's beauty. The place is easy to get to and it offers great photo ops. The sunset at the Zabriskie Point is a phenomenon.
