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.

Dante's View reviews
I think it's worth visiting the badwaters and other lower parts of the park first, then making the trip up to here towards the end. I'd bet sunset would just be phenomenal. more »
It takes a little driving to get up to this point, but the views are spectacular. Could sit up here all day. There are a couple of short hiking trails from the parking lot to get different views. more »
Beautiful panoramic view of the mountains from this point. Went during sunrise and did a short hike to the hills to get a better view.
A look from Dante’s View down to the Bad Water Basin below. Truly an amazing site to behold! The trails near by offer even more wonderful views.
