One of the best reasons for visiting USA’s Rocky Mountains state of Wyoming is to explore the oldest national park in the world, which dates back to 1872.
Yellowstone National Park occupies the north-west corner of Wyoming, offering the highs of mountain peaks and waterfalls to the lows of meadows and geothermal wonders like the Old Faithful geyser, which erupts sky-high every 90 minutes.
The real joy is its unspoiled natural beauty, where wild elk and buffalo roam across almost one million hectares.
There’s comfy hotels, lodges and cabins across the park, while the adventurous can camp in areas like West Thumb Geyser Basin.
Just keep an eye out for the grizzly bears that call this park home.
