Dante's View, Death Valley National Park

(4.9/5 based on 1,500+ 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.

  • A visit to Dante's view to the Sunrise is simply gigantic. First dr way from furnace runs high coming longer Creek as you might think, but it is worthwhile in any case: the view from above the Valley is breathtaking, gaerde at sunrise

  • Quite a long drive off the main road but the stunning view in both directions along Death Valley are well worth it. Very windy when I visited so did not attempt the hike  more »
  • The most beautiful view of the Valley. Wonder. Grandiose. Even if he does not go with a slow vehicle... Arrival is rather hard in the heat! ... Not to be missed!
