Southeast of the turn-off for Badwater Basin is a turn for Dante's View. The drive to the viewpoint is about 13 miles down a curvy, skinny road with some steep grades, but it is well worth it. You will be over 5000 feet higher than Badwater Basin and you get a great view of the attractions along Badwater Road. If the weather is clear enough you can see Mount Whitney (14,494 feet) in the distance. This allows you to see the highest point and the lowest point in the lower 48 states from the same place.

Address: P.O. Box 579, Death Valley, California 92328
Directions: It is reached by a short (13 mile) spur road that runs south from CA 190
