About Yellowstone Upper Geyser Basin

The Yellowstone Upper Geyser Basin is home to the largest concentration of geysers in the world, featuring an approximate 410 geysers. Here you’ll find iconic geysers like Old Faithful, as well as many other lesser known but equally impressive geysers.

History

Yellowstone National Park is the first national park in the world, established in 1872. The Upper Geyser Basin was discovered by explorers during the Washburn-Langford-Doane Expedition in 1870. Since then, it has been a major attraction for visitors due to its unique geothermal features.
