Dante's View aka Dante's view is probably the best view in the entire NP Death Valley. Located at 1,669 meters above sea level on top of Coffin Peak, it lies about 40 km southeast of the settlement of Furnace Creek.

It is a unique place that offers visitors an unforgettable experience. The view from this observation deck is truly breathtaking and is the perfect place to enjoy the beauty of Death Valley.

A view of hell

Dante's View was named after the Italian poet Dante Alighieri, who in his work The Divine Comedy describes hell as a place where everything is on fire and where suffering reigns. The view from Dante's View is truly impressive and can resemble a picture of hell.

Amazing view

There is a stunning view from the observation deck, located on the crest of the Black Mountains in Death Valley National Park, California. It is one of the most popular hiking destinations in the park and offers stunning views of Death Valley and the surrounding mountain range. The place is perfect for taking pictures and watching the sunset.

Easy access

The advantage of this viewpoint is that you can drive directly to it by car, the parking lot is located directly on the terrace of the viewpoint. There is a turnoff from the main road leading to the viewpoint, and the last section is quite steep and only suitable for passenger cars.

Impressive views

The view from Dante's View is truly impressive. The scenery is dramatic and breathtaking. In the distance stretch the white salts of Badwater Basin, reminiscent of a desert desert. High mountains and rock formations rise in the surrounding mountains.
