Dante's View, Death Valley National Park

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.

  • You can get a wonderful view of death valley and the Amargosa River as it spreads across the valley, as well as Mount Telescope. A great way to orient yourself to the park. Unfortunately, the area was...  more »
  • Incredible vista of Death Valley. You get a real sense of the extremes of high and low with the combination of the height of this vista, the height of the mountains to the west and the low long valley...  more »
  • We managed to get up to sunset and it was a powerful view of Death Valley. Park Ranger recommended us to give priority to come here, and she was absolutely right. It was a very nice experience. And not at least good that there was a toilet in the ground on the road:D

  • From here you can have a beautiful view of the valley and badwater basin. Probably it’s better to come before afternoon if you want to take pictures.
  • The view from Dante’s is stunning. We visited the low areas such as the Badwater Basin first and then drove up and watch them from Dante’s view. It is very nice and quiet but a bit windy, so bring a jacket.
  • This was a gem of a stop. About 14 miles off the main road and a 15% grade makes this a car beater and mine had enough when I reached the top. The view is nice and it's well worth the trip.
  • This is one of the best places you should visit in ur lifetime .. must see .
  • A must see in the park. The best view there is. You can drive right up to the overlook.

Where to stay in Death Valley National Park

Death Valley National Park provides numerous developed campgrounds where you can pitch a tent. Some of these are free, and some are open year-round, while others only offer camping in the cooler, non-summer months. There are a few privately owned and operated lodges and inns in the park, most of which feature rustic accommodations. With its upscale lodging, the Furnace Creek Inn stands as an exception. The town of Beatty, on the Nevada side of the park, offers a few basic inns and motels and a couple of casinos. On the California side, Randsburg sits farther away from the park's popular Furnace Creek area, but the town offers numerous economy motels and views of the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
