Takakkaw Falls is the second highest waterfall in Canada. Takakkaw means
"magnificent" in Cree. And it is. We love how the top of it "blasts"
off a ledge and down over a thousand feet to finally hit the bottom.
Very powerful. Obviously, this is popular with the tourists, so you
will not be alone. But it did not seem really "too" busy when we were there,
and you can essentially walk right up the embankment to the base of the
falls (getting a bit wet in the process).
Other Falls. From Takakkaw Falls, take the Yoho Valley
Trail to see 4 more waterfalls: Point Lace Falls, Angels Staircase,
Laughing Falls, and the very impressive 260 ft. (79.3 m) Twin Falls. The moderate
trail is 5.2 miles (8.3 km) one way.
