Zabriskie Point is a part of the Amargosa Range located east of Death Valley in Death Valley National Park in California, United States, noted for its erosional landscape. It is composed of sediments from Furnace Creek Lake, which dried up 5 million years ago—long before Death Valley came into existence.

Millions of years prior to a lake covered a large portion of Death Valley including the area around Zabriskie Point. During several million years of the lake’s existence, sediments were collecting at the bottom in the form of saline mud, gravel from nearby mountains, and ashfalls from the then-active Black Mountain volcanic field.

These sediments combined to form what we today call the Furnace Creek Formation. The climate along Furnace Creek Lake was dry, but not nearly as dry as in the present. Borates minerals were concentrated in the lakebeds from hot spring waters and alteration of rhyolite in the nearby volcanic field. Weathering and alteration by thermal waters are also responsible for the variety of colors represented here.

Zabriskie Point is also the name of a 1970 movie by Italian director Michelangelo Antonioni; its soundtrack features music by British band Pink Floyd and Jerry Garcia. The philosopher Michel Foucault called his 1975 acid trip at Zabriskie Point the greatest experience of his life. Shots taken from Zabriskie Point were used as the basis for shots that were then digitally altered to form the planet of Arvala-7 in the first season of The Mandalorian.
