Yosemite National Park, USA

Reasons to visit:

Best time to visit: Summer (May-Aug) for hiking, winter for snowshoeing & avoiding tourists. Note that some roads & viewpoints (ex: Glacier point) are open only in the summer.

Food & DrinkIf there is 1 thing we want you to know about food at Yosemite, it is that the Yosemite Lodge food court near the Yosemite Falls trailhead has proper hot food (pasta & rotisserie) & was our only hot meal in 3 days of camping. That meal felt like a million dollars after being tired going hiking & not having hot meals for a couple of days.

Tip: Especially if you are camping, keep enough dry food with you. On the trails, keep things like trail mix & enough water on you.

Public transport logistics:

  • Getting inThe closest major airport is San Francisco (SFO). Again thanks to the generosity of our friend, we drove to & around Yosemite national park.
  • It is possible to get to the centre of the park in summer by getting a Greyhound bus from SF to Merced (3 hr 35 min) at 11 am & transfer to the Yarts bus at 4:30 PM (4 more hours). Full Yarts schedule.
  • Getting around: This is the easy bit, there are free electric shuttle buses that take you around the park for free. Full list of schedules.
