The Site

Yosemite National Park is set within California’s Sierra Nevada mountains. It’s famed for its giant, ancient sequoias, and for Tunnel View, the iconic vista of towering Bridalveil Fall and the granite cliffs of El Capitan and Half Dome. In Yosemite Village are shops, restaurants, the Yosemite Museum and the Ansel Adams Gallery, offering prints of the photographer’s renowned black-and-white landscapes of the area.

Transportation

Getting There
Getting to/from the Yosemite Valley is around 3 hours by car from the Bay Area. Khuddam flying to the Bay Area have a couple options.

Option 1 (highly recommended): Fly into any airport (San Francisco [SFO], Oakland [OAK], San Jose [SJC], or Sacramento [SAC]) and rent a car. You will be responsible for transporting yourself / your group to the Ijtema venues from the airport, and returning to the airport.

Option 2 (if necessary): If you’re unable to rent your own vehicle, you may fly into San Francisco [SFO] or Oakland [OAK] on Fri, 5/27 and book your departure for Wed, 6/1. Due to the long distances between the Bay Area and Yosemite, SFO and OAK are the only airports we will be able to provide transportation to/from. We will have extremely limited shuttle service, and for this reason you are again highly encouraged to rent your own vehicle or buddy-up with a group that is renting a car.
