Half Dome à Yosemite Village

Yosemite National Park

Half Dome

Half Dome is one of the most recognizable landmarks in Yosemite National Park. It is a granite dome that rises almost 5,000 feet above the valley floor and is visible from many locations throughout the park. The dome is believed to be millions of years old and is the result of erosion that occurred over time. Half Dome is known for its unique shape, which resembles a half dome, as well as its steep and challenging hiking trail that leads to the top.

One of the most popular activities at Half Dome is hiking to the top. The trail is approximately 16 miles round-trip and is recommended for experienced hikers only. Hikers must also obtain a permit to climb Half Dome, as the trail is considered dangerous due to its steep drop-offs and weather conditions. The hike provides stunning views of the park and is a challenging but rewarding experience for those who make it to the top.
