All reviews death valley badwater basin parking lot valley floor entire valley bring a jacket salt flats highest point windy road grand canyon first stop surrounding mountains watch the sunset bad water basin furnace creek telescope peak vantage point
Its not too long of a drive to get here. The view of the Death Valley basin is excellent. There are restriction on vehicle length and trailers since the last 1/4 mile or so is very steep. Maybe a 15% grade.
Dante's View is a great place to get a big picture view of Death Valley NP.
The view is quite accessible from the parking lot....don't need to walk very far. There are some additional trials which are quite good and give you some different perspectives...More
We went too this highest point and overlook at the end of the day. We stuck around to see a glorious sunset. Saw wildlife on the way there and almost got a owl hood ornament as one swooped down when we drove back in the...More
I beat out the sunset by a drive through hairpin turns to the top of Dante’s View. This mountain is several thousands of feet tall. You can see many snowy mountains, golden canyons, salt flats, and a variety of desert and mountain vegetations. It is...More

i suggest to go with order where Dante's view at last ,if you can reach that point by Sunset, after watching sunset you can drive back to Vegas but this schedule is very aggressive and possible if you start early and reach Death valley by 10 AM max.
Keep lots of food +water with you and don't forget to refuel your vehicle at Furnace Creek
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.
