Create an itinerary including Dante's View
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.

  • Dantes view was a bit of a drive from Furnace Creek, but we’ll worth it. It quite a climb but a large parking lot. There is a hiking trail that gives you a better view of Badwater. It was very...

  • As the title says, the view is spectacular. It is a short drive from the park center and mornings are very nice.

  • Best place to lay eyes on the valley. Soupy browns and tans and beige swirling below. I was here for sunset and it was windy, chilly.
  • You need to take a side road just to get to this point but its totally worth it. The views from the top are amazing! There are rugged mountains, you can also see salt flats all the way down (bring your zoom lens for close ups). Big enough parking lot, you can also take a trail for different views/angles. Death valley gets really hot in summer, so it is recommended to visit in winter time. Carry a lot of water with you and fill up your gas before entering the park as it is huge!
