"Takakkaw Falls" Banff National Park Things to Do Tip by lazyman_1

Banff National Park Things to Do: 444 reviews and 729 photos


Measuring in as Canada's second highest waterfall, Takakkaw Falls doesn't not dissappoint. The official measurement puts the falls at 384 meters. The water hits the rock part way down causing the water to shoot outwards which makes for a great site to see. The actual freefalling water travels 254 meters down. Because of the height the water drops, there is s lot of mist in the air, so much so that you need to take care of your cameras and realize that if you spend 10 or 15 minutes close enough to the base of the falls, you'll leave soaking wet.
