Athabasca Falls is located at the intersection of Highway 93 and Highway 93A, about 30 minutes from the town, and the parking lot is very close to the attraction, so you don't need to walk for a long time. From the information point of view, although it is not the highest waterfall in the Rocky Mountains, the intersection of large and small rivers makes it the most powerful and spectacular waterfall. There is a path around the waterfall, which can be viewed from different angles. The tour time is about 1 hour.
Athabasca Falls is located in Jasper National Park in Canada. It is a waterfall formed in the upper reaches of the Athabasca River. It is said to be the most thrilling in the Rocky Mountains Waterfall. The meltwater of the Columbia Ice Sheet merged into the endlessly turbulent Athabasca River. This pure and clear glacier flows from south to north to the Arctic Ocean to the vicinity of Jasper. The wide river gradually shrinks and follows the curve of the dense rocky forest. The gorge flowed all the way, and suddenly fell to a cliff of 20 to 30 meters, forming the galloping Athabasca Falls.
Athabasca Falls is not only famous for its 23-meter height and rushing water, but also because the waterfall water carries sand and stones, and the pothole formed by impacting the two shores with great force is amazing. This glacial water scoured these huge rocks year after year and day after day. After thousands of years of "cutting", the riverbed of this huge rock was finally washed out of a 25-meter-deep gorge, highlighting Athabasca. Waterfall is the beauty of the force that moves forward courageously and torrentially.
Although Athabasca Falls is not as shocking as Niagara Falls, its water volume is abundant and the scene is extremely spectacular. In summer, you can have picnics here, and the lower reaches of the waterfall is a paradise for many rafting lovers.
西溪老翁Pyramid Mountain and Pyramid Lake
Pyramid Mountain and Pyramid Lake are very close to the small town of Jasper. Pyramid Mountain has an approximate equilateral triangle shape. The exposed rocks are golden yellow and shining in the sun. Hence the name Pyramid Mountain. The Pyramid Lake is not large, so it is named because it is at the foot of the Pyramid Mountain. The golden pyramid mountain reflected in the emerald Pyramid Lake is truly sharp and angular, making it a famous scene in Jasper National Park. There are many wild animals here.
sculptorSunwapta Falls is a pair of waterfalls on the Sunwapta River in Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada. The falls fall about 18.5 meters and the falls are the most spectacular at the end of spring. Water comes from the Asabasca Glacier.
cparisshLooking at the car, it was already very cold in October. You can see that the top of the mountain not far away is covered with white snow, and it is cooler to dry. It is best to have a group of 5 people in a trekking route to prevent encountering wild animals.
If you happen driving in Jasper National Park do not forget Tangle Creek and watch out for the roaming animals. Alot of surprises when you are in an adventure!
Adventure is always right there when you are in Sunwapta Falls! The river beside it is just surreal. We felt like we can stay there forever except it is getting really cold.
The incredible Mt. Robson in the Canadian Rocky Mountains is quite the draw. Come discover this beautiful destination. Together we can make 2020 the year of the amazing!

Mount Robson is the largest mountain in the Rockies. Standing at the base after hiking 8 hours in was both humbling and comforting. This is one of my favourite places in the world and I’d highly recommend checking it out! #berglake #hiking #bc #alberta
Humans hold funerals for the demise of the glaciers. To the Jasper National Park in the Rocky Mountains, be sure to take a look at the angelic glacier shaped like a wing. There is a beautiful blue-green small lake under the glacier. There is still a lot of ice floes in July, and the sunset is drunk with the calm water. The Angel Glacier is one of the fastest disappearing glaciers in the Rocky Mountains. With global warming, one day you will never see the wings of the two-winged angel again.
"Deer infested" - feeling Jasper's wildness
Jasper National Park is in the mountains of the Rocky Mountains north of Banff, there is a male elk in the town of Banff The bronze sculpture reminds people that it is already an area where wildlife is active.
When the tourist bus sails into Jasper's Snowy Avenue, it will stop waiting for the deer or bighorn antelope to avoid the aisle. This is the most exciting moment for tourists. They wake up in a sleepy car dream and stand up to see the rare wild animals in these modern cities. Here, as soon as you look up, you can see the eagle-winged geese flying low in the sky; when you open the roadside in the morning, your room will be in a hurry and look for food. It will give you a real bear hug!
When I entered the Jasper area, the mood of watching the scenery was different from that of Banff. It seemed to smell the game, and the heartbeat was really quick to come up with "it".
When the bus arrived at the Jasper Town Hotel to stop the luggage, when I watched the golden leaves of the flame in the middle of the isolation belt, I suddenly felt that there was an animal shadow behind the left deciduous tree. "! At this time, the entire coach only I still copied the telephoto camera, and immediately went through the road to find out, there is a real male deer, there is a deer opposite the hotel, Jasper is wild enough!
The next morning, the footsteps involuntarily moved to the old place of yesterday, and there was a deer in the pine forest opposite. It was a group of wild deer!
This is the real "close contact"! The female deer yelled at my camera; the time when the oriental dynasty Xia Luqun returned home, I saw the male deer behind the temple, while driving away, there was a deterrent squatting; when I went back to the pine tree, I saw a little deer falling behind the legs. Run, at this time inexplicably thought of the tour guide thousands of photos to see the "bears infested" breath-free self-rescue method, suddenly felt that they are not angry.
The camping of the Canadian National Park must apply for permit on the official website. Its not that you walk into the forest with a tent to see which scenery is good, and one tent can live directly. The camp is divided into front camping camping and backcountry camping. The first-level camp facilities are complete. There are bathrooms and toilets. The remote camps are mostly remote. It may be inconvenient for vehicles to enter and exit. The facilities are simple, but the scenery is definitely better.
Select the park you want to go to on the official website. There are many camps in a park. The level is different. I chose the wapiti camp of Jasper, which is fully equipped and has a shower room, close to the town of Jasper. Click to enter the Wapiti selection area, then select site, each site has photos and details. After payment, the official website will send the number of the permit to your mailbox and present it to the staff at the entrance of the camp. If you need a bonfire, you need to pay the fire permit fee here.
Rising can only use the firewood provided by the camp. People should not leave the campfire and turn off before 23 o'clock.
Walking on a trail path along the river valley and the waterfall, you can find a good angle to enjoy and shoot the waterfall. The river is clear and transparent, icy and biting, and some rivers are calm and calm, and some rivers are rushing, and the river passes over the bare rocks, causing layers of waves. At the height of 25 meters, the Athabasca Falls are not too big, but because the river is narrow, the water flow is large, the flow rate is fast, the waterfall is rolling rapidly, and the water flowing down makes the mist rise.
This is a classroom of natural philosophy. A small drop of water can roar like it can be gathered together. It can be shredded to block hard rock. Don't despise weak forces. Sometimes they can change the world as well.
