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.

Its crowded with tourist but still worth a visit. Amazing waterfalls and rock formation. No entrance fee and you can enjoy the short walk. The view is awesome. Highly recommended to visit this place.
Sunwapta Falls are very beautiful and impressive waterfalls in Jasper/Banff National Park closer to Jasper. The water comes roaring down the falls to pass raging at the bottom of a narrow rocky path going under pedestrians bridge going further in its high walled rocky way. Very beautiful.
