Dante's View, Death Valley National Park

(4.9/5 based on 1,400+ reviews on the web)
From a 1,669 m (5,476 ft) high terrace, Dante's View provides a panoramic view of the southern Death Valley basin. Look for the Devil's Golf Course--a field of complex mineral formations that looks like a large body of water from above. See the Owlshead Mountains, the Great Basin ranges, and the 3,367 m (11,047 ft) Telescope Peak. On a very clear day, you may even be rewarded with a sight of the highest and lowest points in the entire contiguous United States. Bear in mind that, because of the wind and elevation, you'll need warmer clothes than when visiting the valley. Put Dante's View on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Death Valley National Park tour planner.

  • Our last point of visit of the Valley of death before leaving for Las Vegas. A staple of this day in this fabulous National Park! A breathtaking view the on part of the Park and an amazing view of Badwater Basin! The only negative is the time to get to this point of view count about 1 h 30 minimum round-trip since Zabriskie. The road is in very good condition!
