Denali, Denali National Park and Preserve

(4.7/5 based on 1,700+ reviews on the web)
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. Use our Denali National Park and Preserve vacation builder to add Denali and other attractions to your Denali National Park and Preserve vacation plans.
