From picturesque lakes and scenic waterfalls, to staggering glaciers and sinuous rivers, Yosemite National Park possesses an abundance of natural wealth which draws outdoor enthusiasts in droves. The bounds of the expansive park are also home to lingering traces of culture and heritage preserved in the form of age-old settlements and landmarks. Be it history or the bounties of nature, an exploration of Yosemite is sure to reveal myriads of wonders which delight all those who venture here.


Yosemite Falls

One of the tallest in the world, Yosemite Waterfall plunges from a height of about 2,425 feet (739 meters). The magnificent cascade is an amalgam of three smaller ones, the Upper Yosemite, which graces most landscape depictions of the falls, the Middle Cascades, which is made up of a series of plunges, and the Lower Yosemite, which most visitors experience at close quarters. Spring is when the waterfall is in its element; a thundering show of force that sends Yosemite Creek's waters crashing into the rocks below. The waterfall, fittingly, is one of the park's most visited attractions and is an awe-inspiring spectacle not to be missed.
