Located in the scenic Sierra Nevada Mountain range, south of Yosemite National Park, Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Parks are adjacent to one another. These twin National Parks preserve lush forests, granite peaks, and glacier-carved canyons.
Rich with wildlife (and not as busy as Yosemite) the parks are most famous for their giant sequoia trees, the earth's largest living species ! You'll be impressed by the General Sherman sequoia tree here...by volume the largest tree in the world at a height of 84 metres...
You've got to see the towering Mt Whitney, the highest mountain in the contiguous 48 states which watches majestically over these parks.
America's deepest canyon, the Kings Canyon was formed by the King River. The views around here are stunning, canyon walls rise 1,000 feet each side with sheer granite cliffs and beautiful waterfalls.
