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.

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

  • Best part of the trip. Amazing view of the valley below. Worth the drive. Paved so no offroading. No hiking necessary so it's an easy place to visit in the summer. Was 112 degrees the day I was...

  • 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.
  • Incredible views. There's some nice small hikes you can do to get different angles of the view. Use caution in the last section up, many drivers tend to cut corners and will drift into your lane on blind corners.
