Yosemite is one of the most visited and popular national parks in the U.S. An iconic feature is its granite monolith of Half Dome. Standing nearly 8,800 feet above sea level, whether you ascent up the cables or admire it from afar, Half Dome is an experience you’ll never forget. There are steel cables to hang on to but rain makes it a very slick climb. The Panorama Loop is another popular and stunning hiking route. Along the trail you will get to see iconic spots like the Half Dome, Mist and Vernal Falls, Illouette Falls, and Glacier Point. Another favorite is Taft Point, offering the most spectacular views of the park.
