Visitors who want to see the Yosemite firefall in 2021 should bear in mind that due to the popularity of the event, restrictions are in place from February 13 to 25 daily from noon to 7pm.
Every year from mid to late February, a captivating and unusual sight can be witnessed as the sun sets at Yosemite National Park. Horsetail Falls, which flows in the wintertime over the eastern edge of El Capitan in the valley, can be seen lit up in brilliant glowing hues of orange and red as if lava is flowing down the face of the cliff. This phenomenon is called the Yosemite firefall, and it always manages to captivate astounded audiences that have ventured there to see it.
