Chute Montmorency

About 12km east of Quebec City are the famous Montmerency Falls. The 83m / 272 ft falls are 20m / 100ft higher than Niagara Falls.

You can get up quite close to the base of the falls, and for the tough, you can climb the stairs up to them. For those who are less active, there is a cable car with gondola up to the falls.

There are three viewing platforms on the stairs on the way up (you can see them on the right side of the picture).

View from the top

Whether you climb up the stairs or taken the gondola ride up, you get a nice view from the bridge over the top of the falls.

Falls close up

This is as close as you can get to the falls, but be forewarned, it gets a bit wet when you get this close!
