Tunnel View - Review

Sometimes Mother Nature lines up the perfect photograph and then leaves it there for us to find enlightenment in – or win photoplasty contests. The most beautiful attractions are the El Capitan on the left, the Half Dome on axis and the Bridalveil Fall on the left – this is one of the most photographed views in the world. There’s almost certainly going to be a crowd. There isn’t much else to do, and the place is easily reached by car. Bring food and water for however long it is you think you’re going to remain drunk on this beauty.

Tunnel View, Yosemite National Park Reviews

  • The view is tunnel view is beautiful! I have been at this spot several times and it never gets old. If you are into hiking, there is a trail head from the parking lot to Inspiration Point. It has the same view from the parking lot, but you are at a higher elevation. It is about 1.30 up to Inspiration Point. Just beautiful!!

  • This is only a small part of the great wonders that the park has. However after crossing this tunnel you will have access to one of the most amazing view points of the park. Specially for those that want capture a perfect sunset. Take into account some times the view point is full and you will have to wait for parking. This happens during the summer season and weekends.

  • One of the most iconic views in the Yosemite Valley. Never gets old even after multiple visits. Club this with driving through the unique super long tunnel through granite to make it a unforgettable experience. Spring and winter are always the best time for this place. Spring season brings amazing waterfalls and snow coats the place in magical white coat. Highly recommend this spot as part of your valley tour.

  • This is one of my favorite locations in Yosemite. Try to arrive early if you want to take amazing sunset photos as sunset is one of the popular times for people to visit. Also, stay away from it during 10-1 to avoid tour bus and noisy visitors. My best experience of Tunnel View comes from after sunset when the night sky is about to turn dark and the lights from valley floor gradually turn on.

  • Breathtaking views well worth the effort hiking up the well marked trails. Take lots of water, 1.5 litres just wasn't enough after 6 hours in the sun. Well worth pushing to the top. Take a drive to Glacier Point for sunset and you won't be disappointed.
