Upper Geyser Basin, Yellowstone National Park
(4.9/5 based on 800+ reviews on the web)
Containing nearly one quarter of all geysers in the world, Upper Geyser Basin is where you'll find the majority of the geysers in Yellowstone National Park. This small area, only 5 sq km (2 sq mi) in size, features spouting geysers, rainbow-colored hot springs, and steaming fumaroles. Discover the most famous geyser in the world, Old Faithful, which erupts regularly about every 45 to 90 minutes. The geyser spouts approximately 31 m (100 ft) into the air. In the same region, you can continue on to visit Morning Glory Pool, a 7 m (23 ft) deep funnel-shaped pool with beautiful coloring. With 410 geysers in the basin, there's no shortage of geological wonders to explore. Using our custom trip planner, Yellowstone National Park attractions like Upper Geyser Basin can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • One can see different thermal features here. Stay on Trails. Colourful and beautiful area. Each Geysers is beautiful in its own way. 
  • Very beautiful geysers with really particular colors. In the morning it can what against falling because more steam is making you sometimes can't see the hotsprings. Especially the Morning Glory Pool is very impressive.

  • 我们花一个中午沿着上间歇泉盆地的木质步道走一圈所看到的间歇泉,也许比我穷尽一生走遍地球其它几个大陆所能看到的还要多了。除了老忠泉,牵牛花池是我最爱的一处,颜色真美,而且在步道的远端,人不多,有足够的耐心才会走到那里。其他间歇泉,比如古堡,比如巨人,比如洞穴,形状都很令人惊叹。走过跨于火洞河上的步道小桥时,各种泉眼,或颜色美丽或吐着白烟,有些喷泉还正欢快地喷发着,真是非常难忘的美景。
