Athabasca Falls Athabasca Falls is located at the intersection of Highway 93 and Highway 93A, about 30 minutes from the town, and the parking lot is very close to the attraction, so you don't need to walk for a long time. From the information point of view, although it is not the highest waterfall in the Rocky Mountains, the intersection of large and small rivers makes it the most powerful and spectacular waterfall. There is a path around the waterfall, which can be viewed from different angles. The tour time is about 1 hour. Athabasca Falls is located in Jasper National Park in Canada. It is a waterfall formed in the upper reaches of the Athabasca River. It is said to be the most thrilling in the Rocky Mountains Waterfall. The meltwater of the Columbia Ice Sheet merged into the endlessly turbulent Athabasca River. This pure and clear glacier flows from south to north to the Arctic Ocean to the vicinity of Jasper. The wide river gradually shrinks and follows the curve of the dense rocky forest. The gorge flowed all the way, and suddenly fell to a cliff of 20 to 30 meters, forming the galloping Athabasca Falls. Athabasca Falls is not only famous for its 23-meter height and rushing water, but also because the waterfall water carries sand and stones, and the pothole formed by impacting the two shores with great force is amazing. This glacial water scoured these huge rocks year after year and day after day. After thousands of years of "cutting", the riverbed of this huge rock was finally washed out of a 25-meter-deep gorge, highlighting Athabasca. Waterfall is the beauty of the force that moves forward courageously and torrentially. Although Athabasca Falls is not as shocking as Niagara Falls, its water volume is abundant and the scene is extremely spectacular. In summer, you can have picnics here, and the lower reaches of the waterfall is a paradise for many rafting lovers.
I went there in October. The current is quite big. It is recommended to go there in the afternoon. I went there early in the morning, so the sunlight is backlit and the license plate is a bit dark. It will look good when you take pictures from different angles. The Tiansheng Bridge is here.
Athabasca Falls is the most spectacular waterfall on Icefield Boulevard, and the viewing point is just a few steps down from the parking lot. You must stop and watch. [Scenery] Moving around the waterfall, there are several viewing spots in different directions, you can experience the magnificent waterfall scenery up close, especially the rainbow that appears after the water vapor is engulfed, so beautiful. [Fun] Especially in the distant mountains in the background, the vegetation is also strangely colorful, so amazing! [Value for money] The price of a day ticket for 2 to 7 people charged by the National Park by car is less than 20 Canadian dollars. Conscience price!
Go to see Asabasika Waterfall. This waterfall is not big, of course not comparable to Toronto or American waterfalls, but the sound of the water reverberates in the mountains and is still powerful. The little fish refuses to walk or cooperate to take pictures, only the little dog is willing to squeeze a barely smile
