hiking above Chephren Lake

I had never heard of Waterfowl Lakes Campground, 57km north of Lake Louise on the Icefields Parkway between Banff and Jasper in the Canadian Rockies.

It seems to be mainly populated with visitors from Germany and Austria.

If you are car camping this is a good choice.

We camped beside pretty Mistaya River close to the hiking trailhead. Though the walk in was longer than we wanted, we had great fun playing in the snow fields and waterfalls above the lake.

  1. Mt Chephren is also a difficult scramble.
    I think it is pronounced ‘kefren’ and is named after something Egyptian.
