Wapta Falls – Yoho’s best waterfall?

Wapta Falls – Yoho’s best waterfall?

Wapta Falls has to be one of the best waterfalls I have ever seen. You can reach it via an easy hike, but the payoff is simply magnificent.

However even if you can’t camp you’d be…

Takakkaw  (apparently pronounced Tah-kuh-kah), means “it is wonderful” in the local Cree language. It is easy to see why this name was chosen; The massive 250m+ drop blasts water out in a huge spurt that sprays the whole area…
