Lehamite Falls is located in Yosemite National Parkmarker. It consists of a long series of steep cascades that fall into Yosemite Valleymarker, in a manner similar to Sentinel Fallmarker. The falls are located in a small cleft in the north wall of the valley known as Indian Canyon, immediately to the right of Yosemite Fallsmarker and seen above Yosemite Village. Lehamite is Indian for “arrowwood.”

Lehamite Falls is probably the most underappreciated significant waterfall in Yosemite National Park, simply because it's located almost right next to Yosemite Falls, so people don't usually pay any attention to it. It is also little known as the falls appear only in the early spring or after a heavy rainfall. It is one of the few features in the park that has retained its original Ahwaneechee name.
