The mere fact of being North America’s highest waterfall puts this lovely natural beauty on the top of many adventure lovers bucket list. The water plunges down in three stages; down a staggering height of 739 metres, making it the seventh highest fall in the world. The fall is fuelled by the rushing waters of Yosemite Creek that plunges over the top fall with incredible force. Various trails lead to both the top and bottom of this first fall.

The second stage is largely inaccessible. The third stage though, is easily accessible from a viewing from Yosemite Lodge. After a season of scant snow, the waters may sop flowing altogether in the summer, though a single thunderstorm can set it off again. To get to the top of the Upper Yosemite Fall, start to hike from Camp 4, or go further north to start it from Tioga Road. The local Indians once believed that the bottom of the falls were inhabited by a coven of Witches and it’s not hard to see why they might have thought so; approaching the bottom can become a very tricky and dangerous endeavour, thanks to high humidity and resulting slippery surfaces.
