Banff National Park

Sulphur Mountain Summit

We started with a visit to the Sulphur mountain summit using Banff Gondola. The vistas from top are great and you get a hint of what is to come! The town of Banff is small but charming, Good restaurants and Coffee shops all around.

Lake Louise

Next day we visited Lake Louise. A sapphire-whitish colored lake fed by glaciers. The color is due to the rock particles brought down by the glaciers grinding the mountain side. Since we were in the area for 2 more days we visited this beautiful lake at different times to see somewhat changing colors.

Lake Moraine

Lake Moraine is close by too. This one has super bluish color(different from Lake Louise). A small hike leads to a stunning view point where you can see the blue lake surrounded my multiple craggy peaks. This is a poster card /surreal sight and is widely used as the face of Canadian Rockies in web. It is hard not to be awed by this jaw dropping sight.
