“parking lot”(88 reviews)
“hairpin bends”(14 reviews)
The falls, in the northern half of Yoho park, drop 833 ft -- making it one of the highest waterfalls in Canada. The falls are spectacular in early summer, when melting snow and ice provide ample runoff.
Suggested duration: 1-2 hours
Yoho National Park, British Columbia, Canada

I walked 20 min from parking but it was flat road. Easy and fun walking. After that you could see amayzing scenery. The water fall was huge and dynamic. I could get a lot of negative ions which made me relax and refresh. 車でジャスパーへ向かうとちゅの道を左折し、ヨーホーの方へ少しいくとtakakkawの滝の入り口に着きます。道路はハイウェイの一本道なので迷うことなく行けました。少し平らな道を歩いていくと滝が見えてくるというか、音がすごいのでびっくりしました。遠くからでもゴーッという音が聞こえ、相当大きなものだというのを感じることができます。国土だけでなく自然の大きさも何十倍も日本より壮大です。

The road up to the falls can be exciting with switchback curves which add to the memory of the trip. We found the parking to be pretty full but did find spots for a RV so best to hit this spot in the morning. The...More

The falls are 9 miles from Highway 1. There a few interesting pull offs overlooking the rivers on the drive. There are a couple of scary spots on the road (steep canyon, no guard rails) and one hairpin turn that is OMG. No RVs allowed...More

These falls are breathtaking. They come straight off a glacier and are absolutely majestic. The falls flow into the Kicking Horse River, which is a sight to behold by itself. It is a very fast flowing river of different colors caused by the silt that...More

The waterfall was very nice but no overly I.pressive at this time of year and as always you have to do battle with crowds of people. We wondered whether it was worth the drive in the end. The hike in and the waterfall itself at...More

The road getting to the falls was fun to drive. It is not recommended for RV's or those pulling campers. The falls is just a short walk from the parking area. They had some of the Canadian "RED CHAIRS" for a photo op with the...More

You can take photos of this magnificent waterfall from various spots - from the road, from the red chairs and especially from the path close up where you can even feel the spray. It's quite a magnificent sight. It is a flat walk to get...More

Short walk from car park to falls, nice photo shots for the taking. Although annoying that some people insist to climb all over everything and go to the extreme to take a photo.

Thx to all. We went last week and after we parked, it took us 10 - 15 minutes to walk leisurely to the Falls, and then 10 minutes to walk back, including the time for photo taking.
