Yoho National Park

Area: 1402 sq km. Location: Situated on the west side of the Rocky Mountains, Yoho is one of the four mountain parks designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Terrain: The terrain of Yoho Park consists of rugged glaciated mountains. Most of the mountains on the divide itself are surrounded by icefields, and any peak over 3000 m has glaciers. The park contains many ski mountaineering destinations. Of particular interest are Takakkaw Falls, one of the highest waterfalls in Canada, and the famous fossil deposits of the Burgess Shale. Also of interest are the two Spiral Tunnels on the Canadian Pacific Rail line, which spiral upward inside the mountain to climb upward toward Kicking Horse Pass from Field, BC. These are visible from the highway.
