Dante's View, Death Valley National Park

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.

  • 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.
