Small-Group Death Valley National Park Day Trip from Las Vegas

The valley floor at Death Valley the day we visited was at 122*f in the middle of the day! I decided after reading previous trip advisor posts that I wanted to watch the sunset from Dainties view. I'm glad I did, the sunset it's self was a little underwhelming but it's an incredible place to look out over the park and bad water below. It was also way cooler up there which was a nice break from the valley below. It was very peaceful as well, very few people up there and it was so quiet. I don't remember the last time I heard true silence like that. Well worth the 20 min drive off the main road.

It's extremely hot, almost unbearable in summer, but the view is worth a stop (but wouldn't recommend a special trip there). We were driving from Vegas to to Bishop through Death Valley NP. Great desert-like views.

It was exceptionally hot in Death Valley at the end of July - although up at Dantes view it was noticeably cooler.

Don't miss this spectacular view of the valley. A great beginning, or end (depending on direction of travel!) to your visit.

This isn't he highest peak in the park, but it was pretty high. The 365 degree view was spectacular. It was pretty awesome to stand on the peak and look down across the southern Death Valley basin (the salt flats on the basin floor were 282 feet below sea level). I think the peak stands at 5476 feet, so the salt flats beneath looked tiny in the vastness of the valley.

The drive up there is good. It's a bit cooler when you get up there, but it's still hot. It gives you a good all round view of the valley.
