See one of Canada's highest cataracts at Takakkaw Falls. The Daly Glacier feeds these falls, which careen 254 m (833 ft) down a cliff face and create a stream of mist against the backdrop of craggy rock. The name derives from the Cree language, meaning roughly "it is magnificent." Located in a national park, the area surrounding the waterfalls offers ample hiking and climbing routes through the dramatic landscape of forests, peaks, and glaciers.
