“Probably the most wonderful place by the Rockies”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

The Moraine lake is close to Lake Louise and is one of the best places that one person could visit it. I cant say anything else, just amazing!

“Hidden gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

Its a beautiful lake where you can actually witness different sea colours in the same lake. The lake is surrounded by mountains like playing hide and seek. There is also a high altitude but narrow waterfall which is likely to be missed. So,keep your eyes searching for it. If you love the nature, this will interest you.

“Stunning! xD”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

The most beautiful lake in the Rockies. The road is a bit annoying to arrive there and there is just a small parking lot, but everything is worth when you see the lake.

“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

This is a gorgeous spot. It is in the shadow of the better-known Lake Louise but we enjoyed the walk here because it was less crowded and "touristy." The walk was about an hour and it was nice to get away from the crowds. We visited in mid-September and it was lovely. I understand that the summer months aren't as great because tourists come in on busses and the place can get jammed in a hurry. Bring your camera

“Screensaver material”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

Firstly beware the elevation as the air gets quite thin but its totally worth the trip. I can hardly believe the photos i have of this place
