We stopped at Zabriskie Point and a nice man told us we had to come here and that it was only minutes away. That being said the turnoff is 15 minutes and then the drive up starts but worth it.

This is one of the most beautiful points at Death Valley. It is a drive, but worth the view. You will see a long way away.

The drive up to Dante's View is very easy and smooth - well-paved and maintained road. The views were breath-taking. We got there about 45 mins before sunset and walked out to the vista points to the south of the parking lot. Would have been...More

Dante’s View will literally take you breath away, for after a quiet drive through the desert, you suddenly view the entire valley spread below you. You can look down to Badwater Basin, the lowest point in North America and then, if it is a clear...More

We watched the sunrise on a clear spring morning. It’s was as awe inspiring as anyone could hope for. The trip from the Ranch/ Visitors center takes about 40 minutes.

We stopped by Dante's View the first. Fantastic view! The last short section of drive is led by the park staff because the road is winding and a bit steep.

The drive - narrow and curvy - was pretty cool and an added bonus. The views from this view point are nothing short of spectacular. If you can, take the time to walk down or up from the point. The views just get better and...More

This is easy to access and well worth the effort for the view. After a drive in, there is a parking lot and viewing area.

I always visit here, but since I'm never going back, this was the last time. Visit this spot and stay outside the park.

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.
