Posted April 10, 2023 by: Admin #Travel

Nestled amidst the awe-inspiring alpine zone of Yoho National Park, lies a true gem of British Columbia – Lake O’Hara. Elevated at a stunning height of 2,020 meters (6,630 ft), this picturesque lake is surrounded by breathtaking views of the majestic Great Divide, with the provinces of Alberta and Banff National Park to the east.


To reach this ethereal destination, one can embark on a journey via the bus service operated by Parks Canada or take a scenic 11km walk along a winding road that offers a dramatic descent of around 500 meters. Regardless of the path you choose, the enchanting lake and its valley will reward you with an unforgettable experience that will leave you in awe of nature’s pristine beauty.

Lake O'Hara
Lake O’Hara is one of the most sought after hiking and camping destinations in the Canadian Rockies. Every year when the reservation system opens, thousands of avid hikers try to make the reservation, and only a handful of them are successful and can begin planning their trip to Lake O’Hara.

Lake O’Hara is a true gem: a unique collection of luscious lakes and terraced valleys linked by a well-maintained network of connecting trails and high alpine routes. Visitors can choose a single stunning destination or link two or more together for an unforgettable day.

Seven Sisters Falls, visible from the lake approach, is the most striking evidence that O’Hara makes a strong case for the title of the region’s most impressive lake.
