Yosemite Valley

Yosemite Valley is an eight-mile long valley that was carved by glaciers and eroded by the Merced River, carving a canyon to a mile deep in some places. Although Yosemite Valley is only a small part of Yosemite National Park, is the most accessible and the most popular place to visit in the park. The elevation of the mountains, as the tower above the valley make for great pictures right from the floor of Yosemite Valley, but there are many trails of varying difficulty that can be accessed from the valley and it will take you to the mountains.

Half Dome

Rising nearly 5,000 feet above Yosemite Valley and 8,800 meters above sea level, Half Dome is a Yosemite icon and a major challenge for many hikers.
Today, thousands of people reach the summit. For most, it is an exciting and arduous trek, for a few, it becomes more of an adventure than they wanted. Indeed, the rangers help hundreds of people on the trail every summer Half Dome.

Hiking

The 14-16 mile round trip hike to Half Dome is not for you if you are out of shape or unprepared. You will gain altitude (for a total of 4,800 feet) most of the way to the top of Half Dome. Most would say that the reward is worth the effort. Along the way, you will see breathtaking views of Vernal and Nevada Falls, Liberty Cap, Half Dome, and panoramic views of the shoulder and the top of Yosemite Valley and the High Sierra.
