Hidden High Sierra Lakes with the Yosemite Conservancy

This exclusive and extremely challenging adventure offers the opportunity to visit two “buried treasures” in the Yosemite wilderness: Kuna Lake and Lake of the Domes.

Join a small group of fellow Yosemite lovers for a one-of-a-kind guided adventure to some of the Sierra Nevada’s most spectacular, rarely-visited lakes. Enjoy two days of exploration with a veteran naturalist guide, hiking cross-country to the hidden gems, Kuna Lake and Lake of the Domes. As you make your way to each beautiful spot, you’ll learn how to minimize your impact while traveling through the wilderness, find out which plants and animals live in and around mountain lakes, and explore the natural and human stories etched into the landscape.
