The lake and its surroundings are gorgeous, particularly the little waterfall the flows from Lake Agnes down into Mirror Lake. Stopping at the tea house to warm up is a great idea, and you get to enjoy the scenery while you sip! My favorite part...More

About 3,5km from Fairmont Chateau, Lake Louise uphills, you`ll find Lake Agnes. A very nice small lake. When you`re there; stop at the teahouse for a lunch or a snack. Beautiful!

Yes there are public toilets at Lake Agnes. There are two unisex ones similar to the ones along the highway. From the tea room you need to climb about four minutes . They were busy.
