Yosemite Backpacking – Tenaya Lake to Yosemite Valley

Including Clouds Rest and Half Dome

This spectacular backpacking itinerary includes the Yosemite High Country and the Valley – hard to come by! We’ll leave from picturesque Tenaya Lake then wind our way down to Yosemite Valley by way of Clouds Rest and Half Dome.  We’ll see waterfalls, lakes, 11,000’ peaks, and wildlife.   We’ll dedicate an entire day to summiting Half Dome, leaving our backpacks behind for lightweight daypacks. If you only get to do 1 backpack trip in Yosemite – do this one.

We’ll camp off the beaten path, allowing for plenty of time to relax, take pictures, and recover in camp before the next day’s adventure.  You’ll be well fed and taken care by our fantastic guides.

If you only get to do 1 backpack trip in Yosemite – do this one.
