Sequoia National Forest; well known for The General Sherman tree, the largest tree on earth.
My insider TIPS :
- really make sure you know where you’re going. Once you get there, there’s no internet connection at all.
- be prepared for A LOT of flies and other little bugs. You might wanna bring a bug spray
- Sequoia National Forest is very big, it takes 1 hour just to get to the General Sherman Tree once you enter the park
- Park entrance fee : 30$
- Make research which trail you wanna walk : there’s so many and it’s very easy to get lost in the park since you won’t have any service with your phone
Where to stay at :
You can thank me later for this TIP 😉 The Geteway Lounge and Restaurant is one of the most popular Lodge and Restaurants at Sequoia National Park. It’s located right at the entrance of the park. Their restaurant is unbeatable and top rated because of its view of the Kaweah Rivers; which is absolutely breathtaking and relaxing. Visitors know about the continental cuisine and its excellence. If you’re lucky, you might even see a bear on the other side of the river while enjoying some nice dinner on the outdoor patio. The cutest thing is the 20 “Gateway ducks” floating and walking up and down the river.
We had a room with 2 queen size beds since we spent most of the time out in the forest doing photo shoots. If you’d like some more luxury, I highly recommend the “Honeymoon Suite cabin” which features a private sauna and a private balcony with view on the Kaweah River.
