Explore Takakkaw Falls, one of Canada's highest waterfalls

Friday, October 11th 2019, 12:58 pm - Explore one of Canada's highest waterfalls, through your photos.

Located 39 km northwest of Alberta's Lake Louise in Yoho National Park, Takakkaw Falls in the Yoho Valley is one of the highest permanent waterfalls in Canada with a height of more than 250 metres.

While the falls are easily accessible from a nearby parking lot, calm weather tends to attract a lot of tourists.

Park officials suggest visiting the falls early in the morning and during the week to avoid the largest crowds.

Start the climb by watching the video above, and once you're done, scroll through the stunning images (sent in by our viewers), below, for some potential Instagram inspiration!

'Takakkaw’ is a Cree word that means ‘magnificent’.

Hiking at the base of the falls or enjoying the view from elsewhere in the park is a must when visiting the area.
