Home to more natural wonders than some entire countries have, Yosemite National Park is one of the world's most awe-inspiring destinations. Every year, four million visitors make their way to the USA's third-oldest national park to behold dramatic mountains, thundering waterfalls, dense forests, and remarkable fauna, which are spread across nearly 1,200 square metres. Keep your eyes peeled for sightings of wily coyotes, shy black bears, and mysterious bobcats. Most spend their time in Yosemite Valley, which plays host to the majestic rock formations of Half Dome and El Capitan, as well as the tumbling waters of Bridalveil Fall and Yosemite Falls. Enthusiastic climbers and hikers will revel in the spectacular trails that wind their way through the park. Nearby accommodation options, including several luxurious hotels and lodges that blend in with their beautiful surroundings, promise finely appointed rooms, breathtaking views, and all the creature comforts you could wish for. Yosemite is within close proximity to both Sierra National Forrest and Stanislaus National Forest, which also deliver aesthetic and intrepid allure. Sierra National Forrest affords more superb hiking opportunities among the wilderness, including John Muir Trail. Stanislaus National Forest's Calaveras Big Trees State Park and Tuolumne River and Grove is where you can see the towering sequoia trees, some of which reach heights of 84m!
