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.

  • This is a great place to get a photo and a view of the entire valley floor. Be sure to check out both sides of the parking lot as the views are very different. 
  • A nice view of Death Valley the journey to the peak is worth the visit all worth a must.

  • This was my first stop in the Park, stunning. Lots of little chipmunks and birds. View was breathtaking. Got some great photos.
