Upper Geyser Basin
Yellowstone National Park has approximately half of the world’s geysers—and most of them are located at the Upper Geyser Basin. One square mile contains at least 150 of these hydrothermal wonders, making this area the most densely concentrated geyser region in the world. Five major geysers—Old Faithful, Grand, Castle, Daisy, and Riverside are located here.
The Upper Geyser Basin consists of several different sections, including the Old Faithful area, Geyser Hill, the area between Castle Geyser and Morning Glory Pool, Black Sand Basin, and Biscuit Basin.
