Tumbling down from the heights of the Canadian Rockies, the powerful waters of Sunwapta Falls create a mesmerising view. Originating from the Athabasca Glacier, the two falls have a drop of 18 m (60 ft), their frothy white waters crashing down the forests of Jasper National Park. You'll find the falls easy to get to with peaceful surroundings, so take a wander to the soundtrack of the roaring falls and stand in awe at nature's power.

  • About 40 minutes from Jasper. It's not big, but it's a beautiful waterfall.,, It was the day after the rain, so the water flowed more than usual.
  • Beautiful, no need to walk for hours to see beautiful sights.
