Yosemite National Park
Yosemite National Park, a renowned World Heritage Site located in California, is famous for its exceptional waterfalls, biological diversity, gigantic Sequoia trees, peaceful meadows and granite cliffs. Yosemite is visited by 3.8 million people every year, and their visit is mostly limited to the Yosemite Valley area. For those who revel in adventurous exploration trips there is ample opportunity around every corner if they venture into the back country.

Since the area of Yosemite National Park is fairly large (1,200 square miles), it is necessary for the one day trip planners to choose the appropriate kind of trip that would suit them the best. Specializing in just one activity is best to get the most out of a day trip, and you can choose between sightseeing, hiking, bird watching, biking, horseback riding, rock climbing, swimming, kayaking, skiing and many more. People should also note the season of their visit as the weather here varies widely according to the month and the landscape changes dramatically. So those in want of wonderful weather and scenery should visit in the spring, as that is considered the best overall season. Those who prefer winter activities will find that there are various obstacles which they'll have to overcome first, as large sections of the park are closed during this time due to the heavy snowfall.

Recommended Activities

The trip that would suit most people would involve hiking. Places like Yosemite Falls, Bridalveil Fall, Cook's Meadow, and Mirror Lake would offer treasured experiences, and are also family-friendly as the trails are not so demanding. Those who are looking for precarious challenges can try the Wapama Falls, Vernal Fall and Nevada Fall.

People shouldn't miss the "El Capitan" one of the world's largest granite monoliths and a magnet for serious rock climbers. Whether you want to enjoy a rapid ascent or go for a 12 day solo expedition that includes this mountain as one aspect, 'The Big Stone' is where you should head. But people should take care climbing it, as it is grueling even during the best of conditions; so much so that it is strictly prohibited for beginners. Half Dome is another iconic rock formation in the park, while Glacier Point also offers a respectable challenge.

This national park has plenty in store for enthusiastic bikers. Around 12 miles of lined bike routes and ordinary road are available for the intrepid cyclist to explore. Even guided horseback riding trips are available right through the spring. Yosemite is equally well known for its range of water activities. People can enjoy kayaking, swimming and rafting. Swimming in the Merced River is a wonderful experience and the calm waters of Tenaya Lake are perfect for kayaking. Yosemite is also famous for its winter sports, be it at the fantastic Badger Pass ski resort or more challenging back country cross-country skiing, snowshoeing or snowmobiling.

Booking Yosemite Accommodations

So whatever time of year it may be, Yosemite delivers! Just remember that, being a national park, permits are required for entrance as well as for permission to undertake certain activities such as camping. This national park is extremely popular, so advance booking is required if you want to make sure of your accommodations, although there are some 'first come, first served' lodgings including campgrounds and cabins. Campsites and couples cabins in Yosemite are particularly sort after, so get in early!
