Yosemite Valley's landscape is defined by a series of staggering cliffs and geologic formations which accentuate its splendor. While several of these are renowned for their distinct shapes and sizes as well as their picturesque environs, rock formations such as the Half Dome and the Sentinel Dome also make for exhilarating hiking and climbing excursions. Those who relish the rush of adrenaline will revel in the opportunity for adventure provided by these massive natural landmarks.


Half Dome

Towering above the expanse of Yosemite Valley, Half Dome is a distinct and popular rock formation in the Yosemite National Park. The granite dome is one of the park's most recognizable features and evokes a sense of awe in visitors. Owing to its perch, the dome affords spellbinding 360-degree views of the scenery. It is a popular excursion for avid hikers and thrill-seekers. Due to its difficulty level, only experienced hikers and climbers are encouraged to traverse the trail leading to the dome's summit.

The trail that winds across the sloping inclines of the dome is very popular among avid hikers. Posing a challenge to adventurers, this iconic natural landmark invites visitors to scale it and rewards them with spectacular views of the valley from its summit.
