“Must in a lifetime”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

A place everyone MUST visit in a lifetime. The views, climb and drive is breathtaking. Roads are pretty curvy and small lakes here and there are worth a stop and a dip

“National Treasure”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

Just stunning is all seasons! Best time to visit the valley floor is late fall or early spring, beat the crowds and have the place all to yourself. Go to the Awhanhee Hotel to have lunch, walk around, or stay there if you can afford it!

“hiking”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

Hiking through the Valley up to the attractions is fun but typically crowded during the summer. We backpacked down from Tuolumne Meadows after taking the shuttle around. After a little altitude gain it was very comfortable coming back to the valley floor. 3 days. Great way to do it.

“Must see”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

The valley is the main tourist area; choose the season carefully as it can get crowded. Great walks, views and some animals (eg deer) to be seen.
