It's a long winding road to Dante's View but it's well worth the drive. This is the "beauty spot' in DV. It's almost always hazy there so, if you've got a polarizing filter for your camera, try it out here. This parking area was improved...More

Just drive cautiously as you approach top of mountain. New lookout completed 2018 and it’s done very well. Look out and enjoy view as you won’t see it anywhere else. Very windy on our visit requiring a good wind breaker or you will be sitting...More

The access road, the parking lot, and the viewing area are all paved, although the last mile or so of road is a steep climb. There is an outhouse at the bottom. The viewing area is long and roomy. There is extensive signage that gives...More

It was cold and windy when we went, despite the late afternoon sun. It's a long drive up, you pass a lot with a vault toilet in a laptop, but drive a bit more to the actual viewing area that overlooks Badwater. There's a small...More

Do not miss Dante's View as this gives an incredible overview of what you will see in closer detail as you go around the park later.

Decided to head to Death Valley from Vegas for a day and I’m so glad I did! Was an easy drive just over 2 hours. Dante’s view is a must...completely surpassed my expectations. I loved it. I also went to Badwater Basin, passing back through...More

This point is very easily accessible as you can just drive up to lookout and enjoy the views of valley base and amazing sunset. From the point itself you have few small hikes which can give different view

Such a beautiful view. We got to the park pretty late in the day so this was about all we got to stop and see. Fantastic view and a bit of parking. I could see how coming at a busy time would be tricky getting...More

Wonderful experience. My wife and I both exclaimed "wow" when we reached the summit. I also walked from the parking lot to one of the nearby peaks. I certainly felt the altitude when walking back to the parking lot.

Questions & Answers

My family is going to visit Death valley in two days so I need a fast answer please! It'll be one day trip from Las Vegas. I'm thinking visiting several points to visit in this order; Vegas-Mesquite flat sand dune-Furnace creek-Bad water basin-Artists palette-Zabraskie point-Dante's view-Vegas or opposite order Vegas-Dante's view-Zabraskie point-Badwater-Artists palette-Furnace Creek-Mesquite sand-Vegas If we visit all these points, it might be so late to go back to Vegas. I heard driving back to Vegas in night is pretty scary because it's too dark. I don't think we can leave Vegas very early in the morning because my family members can't wake up early. If we have to take out some point from the plan above, which one should we give up? Also, is there any hard spot to walk in these point? One of my family has leg problem. Any other suggestion? Thank you so much in advance!!!

The parking lot is adjacent to the viewing point. The lot was not full when I was there, so it was easy to pull up next to the main sign/diorama of the valley and walk 15 feet (5 meters) to the railing at the lookout point.

From the parking lot, it only takes about 30 minutes to hike to the view point.
