Lillooet Travel Guide: 13 reviews and 42 photos

Lillooet is steeped in the early history of B.C.'s Gold Rush into the Cariboo and Barkerville. It represents the Mile 0 starting point.
The hottest ever temperature in Canada was recorded in Lillooet, more than 112 F. (45C)
Those dark rectcangular shapes in the left side of the photo are fields of ginseng growin under screens.

More to come....

Fountain Gorge

Further up the Fraser, is Bridge River...considered by many to be the "Yosemite of Canada"

I couldn't agree more.

    Haha, I had to study an aerial stereograph for a geomorphology class of that exact spot on the Fraser. I had to plot out the landforms at Lillooet. The Fraser Canyon's great, isn't it?
