    Users Assigned: Kazmi  
    Known for everything from the waterfalls and the sheer cliff faces of El Capitan to its appearance in a certain cartoon, Yosemite is one of those incredible, expansive national parks that just beg to be explored. Accessible by road, but best discovered through the endless miles of hike-ready footpaths (if you do prefer to cruise through, it’s worth noting the total lack of refueling stops within Yosemite – don’t get caught short!), this UNESCO World Heritage sight is diverse and mountainous, and a rival to any major national park in the world.

    Animal lovers will find themselves drifting amongst anything from bears to beavers, while artists and photographers flock to the area for the oversized granite cliffs and lush conifers that dominate the region. El Capitan is a climber’s Mecca, offering up a huge sheer face that’s a serious challenge to even the most experienced of scramblers, while sightseeing at spots like Yosemite Falls (a dripping wet experience that revolves around a drop of nearly 800 meters) might be tourist heavy, but is well worth the hassle.

    You might prefer to swing off the beaten track, heading by foot to the fertile upper meadows, where alpine flora and fauna and a peaceful sense of the natural dominate. Views are invariably incredible, taking in mammoth, glacier-formed valleys and even giving visitors the chance to come face to face with the local bears (take advice from the rangers office on how to deal with encounters before heading to the park’s more remote corners). Other major draws include the cable-assisted climb to the peak of the stunning ‘half dome’, the waterfall-enveloped, challenging strut around the Mist Trail, and the selection of pure, still lakes that make for perfect swimming spots (providing, that is, that you don’t mind some serious chills).

    Yosemite’s reputation proceeds it: few national parks around the world offer such incredible sightseeing and perfect hiking experiences, and for rock climbers, hikers and anybody with a love of a good physical challenge, there are few better places to go. Stick to the regulations to stay safe, and make the most of a genuinely enviable outdoor experience.

        • One of the best places I’ve visited. There are amazing sights wherever you look. So many waterfalls and cliffs. Great hiking trails for you to go on, and they are all labeled properly and allow you decide whether or not you can tackle it. My favorite National Park for sure. Definitely recommend!
        • I absolutely love this place. The natural beauty is honestly breath taking. The drive from San Fran to Yosemite was totally worth it. Yosemite falls was really stunning. I recommend coming here! All love and positivity here.
        • Hugely popular place. However in comparison to other national parks I found this average for a foreign tourist. It is a great hiking and family outing place. It is is best known for its waterfalls, but within its nearly 1,200 square miles, you can find deep valleys, grand meadows, ancient giant sequoias, a vast wilderness area, and much more. Different seasons have different experience. so you must check the current status of the park before visiting especially for the waterfalls.
        • Pure amazing. Very beautiful. Waterfalls and domes in a nice valley. The best time to visit would depend on what you want. For waterfalls, visit during spring. To access the whole park, including the high elevations, visit during summer. However, by August, waterfalls are a trickle or completely dry. Very pretty, just lots of crowds!
        • We came with our 11 year old and two other couples. We had a wonderful time. The hiking was easy and absolutely beautiful. It was so relaxing. We've been to Disney, Las Vegas, Bahamas and I told my husband this was my favorite vacation. We came in the last part of April and stayed in the Park for quicker access. I will definitely be back!
