Moraine Lake is a visitor Attraction in Alberta

Moraine Lake

Away from Lake Louise, at the end of a beautiful 13 kilometer-long oblique mountain road, is Moraine Lake in the Valley of the Ten Peaks. This is another attractive location with similar turquoise water surrounded by snow-capped peaks; however it is a lot fewer visited.

Moraine Lake is overshadowed by ten peaks, all more than 3,000 meters high, containing the Wenkchemna Glacier. There is a grand view across the lake from an overlook reached by climbing up a short path known as the Rock pile Trail, situated close to the parking lot. In the spring, the rumble of falling glaciers or landslides can be heard in the distance.

From Moraine Lake, there is a day walk to Larch Valley and Sentinel Pass, one of the highest mountain passes in the public park. It is a fairly grueling day hike, but the remuneration is the astonishing view. This hike is frequently snow covered in the higher region. The area is mainly gorgeous in autumn when the larches are altering color.
