“Hidden gem”
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”
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!”
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
