Tips

  • Although Yosemite is centrally located in the High Sierra Nevada mountain range, including two peaks over 13,000 feet in elevation, the valley floor itself is cut so deep that it is only 4,000 feet above sea level. Nevertheless, Yosemite Valley is still a mountain destination and visitors should bring warm weather clothing no matter what time of year they visit.
  • Yosemite Valley has high and low tourism seasons, with the summer months being the most visited time of year. The park is visited by 3.5 million people each year, many of whom only spend time in the Yosemite Valley. In high season reservations are required for lodging and many activities.
  • Yosemite is one of the largest and least fragmented habitat blocks of wildlife in the Sierra Nevada, and the park supports a wide diversity of plants and animals. The possibility of a bear encounter is possible in the valley, especially when food is left in cars or out in the open. Take extra precaution not to leave food in cars or on the porch of your lodging, etc. It should go without saying that visitors should never feed any wild animals.
  • The entire Yosemite National Park is roughly the same size as the state of Rhode Island. Within Yosemite Valley and around the surrounding park there are thousands of lakes and ponds, and about 1,600 miles of streams. With so much terrain to explore it is advisable to spend at least a week here if possible. Yosemite will not disappoint.
  • Yosemite is a world-class rock climbing destination. The massive 'big walls' of sheer granite have been ascended countless times since the 1950s. In the past it took climbers several days to climb the monoliths, sleeping overnight on the rock faces, but modern climbing techniques have allowed ascents to be made in mere hours. It is essential that any new climber takes a class to learn the techniques and become acquainted with the equipment.

"Exciting, a whole new concept"
Around The World Travel Radio

"Even though I am a local, I thoroughly enjoyed visiting and learning more about the history of the landmarks. The author's interest in the area comes through in his engaging style of writing. Being able to complete the tour at my own pace made it even
more enjoyable."
Flora Savitzky (Researcher)

"When the conference ended, I stayed in town on my own and used T4M's self-guided tour to decide which things in town I wanted to visit and what to see/do there. The guide was right every step of the way. Bottom line, this guide helped me make the most of my time in town."
Ed Wetschler, SATW & Editor of Tripitini
