Carved out of the Sierra Nevada Mountains the park covers 1,200 square miles of the most spectacular alpine scenery, few places in the world rival its stunning natural beauty.

Yosemite National Park is one of nature’s masterpieces and a must place to visit on a trip to California.At its centre lies a half mile deep depression created by glacial activity during the last ice age. The park is home to innumerable lakes, spectacular waterfalls to take your breath away, meadows and forests with the giant sequoias reaching to the heavens. Forests teem with wildlife, so watch out for the bears! During the summer months all areas of the park are usually accessible by car, and Toiga pass offers a gateway to the east. There are breathtaking views of the park’s scenic highlights from Olmsted Point off Highway 120
