Half Dome, Yosemite Valley, California

One of the most famous valleys in the world, Yosemite Valley in Yosemite National Park, California, USA, has been recreated in delicious detail for Minecraft! Using a high-quality Digital Elevation Model (DEM), the actual elevation of the valley has been converted into a stunning Minecraft Map!

Spawn on top of the iconic peak Half Dome and view the gorgeous glacial valley below. Strap on an elytra and glide past Yosemite Falls like so many daredevils do. Build yourself a small cabin in the valley at the foot of the cliff like the early pioneers who settled in the valley.

This map is great for a unique real-world location transformed into an unforgettable Minecraft map! Granite covers the upper exposures of the mountains, true to reality. Sand, gravel, and clay fill the valley floor as remnants of the former glacial advance. Tree cover is placed to accurately represent the actual tree cover of
the valley. It doesn't get more real than this!

Are you planning to scale the North Face next summer? Use the map to scout out possible routes!

Let me know what other real-world locations you would like to see transformed into minecraft maps!
