An Exciting Hike to Half Dome in Yosemite, USA

Half Dome Yosemite, Yosemite National Park, California, USA. The beautiful Yosemite valley attracts hikers, climbers and nature lovers. Half Dome is the most popular peak in the area, reaching 1,444 m (4,737 ft) height. And it also looks very impressive.

Plan your trip ahead, because you will need to apply online for a permit. This practice prevents from the crowds. If you choose the Mist Trail Route, you will pass the beautiful Nevada Falls on your way.

The hike approximately takes 12 hours to reach the top, so have enough food and water. Or prepare camping and continue the next day. The trail is quite difficult, therefore comfortable footwear is a must. The cables to the rock are up from May to October. So this might be the best time to visit.
