Deep in the spectacular Sierra Nevada mountains in east-central California, lies the magnificent Yosemite National Park. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is home to towering granite cliffs and domes, jaw-dropping waterfalls, the beautiful Tuolumne and Merced rivers, forests of massive sequoia trees, and picturesque mountain meadows. While the park as a whole has plenty to offer, most visitors focus their attention on the famed Yosemite Valley due to its unrivaled natural beauty and spectacular wildlife. A visit to Yosemite National Park is a true delight for the outdoorsy traveller, especially wildlife-enthusiasts and anyone with an adventurous spirit.
