Denali, Denali National Park and Preserve

Rising 6,168 m (20,237 ft) above sea level, Denali is the tallest mountain in North America and the center of Denali National Park. Also known as Denali, it has two significant summits. The taller South Summit is the third most prominent peak in the world. Five glaciers slide down the slopes of the mountain. Every year the park draws hundreds of thousands of visitors eager to take a close look at the mountain's majesty. However, you won't necessarily be able to see the peak; it's often completely obscured by clouds, even on a clear day.

  • Denali is a very beautiful mountain and one of the dangerous mountains on earth to climb. Listen to the park rangers if you are going to climb it. Take their advice very seriously unless you want to die. The weather on that mountain can be very dangerous and can change from good to bad pretty quickly. There’s a reason why it’s called the Great One
  • The climb wasn't too bad, but man oh man, the sleigh ride down was wicked scary! Don't forget to ask for the free Frosty.
  • Its Really cold up here and the only food is snow. worst restaurant I`ve ever been to. but the view is nice
  • Magnificent mountain, but
  • Awesome mountain.
