Going on a Discovery Treks Half Dome backpacking & camping guided hiking trip is a once in a life time experience. For three days we’ll guide you on a hike to the famous and most popular location within Yosemite National Park - Half Dome. We will begin the hike in Yosemite Valley before backpacking into the backcountry to our first few nights of camping on our way to Half Dome. The difficulty of this hike increases significantly with your day hike up Half Dome before we return to Yosemite Valley on the final day. *Route Variation - Our specific hiking route and campsites on each departure are dependent upon permit availability. Difficulty of the hike will also vary based on the route change. Additionally, the ascent up Half Dome is very challenging and is weather permitting. Hiking Half Dome is a very popular tour option in Yosemite, tours are subject to permit availability, please book 6+ months in advance, if possible, to allow for best shot at acquiring a permit.
