Nature at it's best, Gods handiwork is all around. Quite a drive to get into the park but so many stops of interest and trails to try. The map we got from the info center is very helpful giving distances and difficulties.

I have stopped in Clear water so many times on route to and from many places - never went in the park, I am with an Aussie friend now and when in Kamloops at dinner with friends he remarked he might fly to Niagra Falls for a day trip. My friends all agreed that his time and money were better... More

These falls are bigger than the nagar waterfalls in Ontario as we are told. Fourth largest waterfalls in Canada . Looking deep down into the canyon below you can view the splendour of these falls and hear the water as it rumbles down below into the canyon below.

We traveled around the Canadian Rockies and this was by far the most impressive waterfall to see. It's very close to the street so it's easy to get there.

We arrived at the falls at about 530 in the afternoon. By doing so we avoided the crowds. The sun was in the place that created an amazing rainbow. This was a really impressive afternoon and highly recommended.

When visiting the falls at this tranquil place make sure to try an authentic Belgian Waffle baked right on the spot. They are delicious and give you the feeling of being in Belgium while exploring the Canadian back country.

Loved the highest waterfall of all, 1.5 times the height of Niagra Falls. You hear it before you see it & it really is spectacular.
