Marvelous views on badwater! One of the best views in DV. It's a big climb up but it's definitely worth it.

This is worth the drive but if it anytime between Nov-Mar...dress warmly, the wind is killer. Be sure to walk all the way and all the way up. The views are incredible

Dante's View is an amazing spot! The view of Death Valley is an inspiration! The short hike gives you another view which is just as perfect!

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

The drive to Dante's View is pretty easy overall. The last several hundred feet were rather steep, a challenge for our compact rental car, but hey, we made it! The parking area is pretty big and there are a couple benches to sit on. The...More

Our most favorite viewpoint in Death Valley. Worth the drive to see badwater basin and devils golf course. Was very cold and windy but we visited in January. Colder than other parts of the park we visited

We drove up to the point about noon and the parking lot was pretty full. We walked around the viewpoint area but the wind was pretty gusty and made the temperature even worse. The views from the point are amazing - so colorful! You can...More

Questions & Answers
Ask a question
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.
