Half Dome is a granite dome at the eastern end of Yosemite Valley in Yosemite National Park, California. It is a well-known rock formation in the park, named for its distinct shape. One side is a sheer face while the other three sides are smooth and round, making it appear like a dome cut in half. The granite crest rises more than 4,737 ft (1,444 m) above the valley floor.Using our online itinerary creator, Yosemite National Park attractions like Half Dome can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
Half Dome reviews
This monster just dominates the valley. We were so inspired at the size of this rock, you can see it from everywhere in the park. more »
this granite peak to me is by far the most majestic. the rounded aspect of it is amazing and it can even be climbed if you can do a huge hike and climb the cables. more »
Very long and strenuous but very rewarding day hike.
It was quiet and enjoyable when we visited in February 2021. A place for meditation indeed.
