One of those great water falls along the route from Jasper to Banf. You can't miss it since there usually are many tourists around.

Travel Information

On the Icefields Parkway, about twenty-five miles from Jasper. You will need to have a Canada Parks Pass to enter the Jasper National Park. You can pre-purchase one online (it's cheaper), or you will have to purchase one at the park gate. Turn off of the Icefields Parkway at the Sunwapta Lodge and follow the adjacent road about a half-mile to the parking lot. Fall is the best time to go there, because during the summer, the falls are overrun with tourists.
Crowd Factor A decent amount of people
Best Timing Sunrise & daytime during fall
Sunrise & Sunset 08:38 - 17:27 | current local time: 20:55

one of the best locations in the area , be sure to bring your tripod , it's just a short walk to the location from parking . Recommend going in the early morning

An absolute must-see and one of the few class 5 waterfalls along the IFPW. I would recommend to walk past the bridge and use one of the paths down to the right side of the falls, from there you get an even better angle, but be aware of slippery conditions. And as always leave no trace!

Thanks for the advice dear Christian. Would you mind to upload the other spot too? I am probably there in a few weeks, so this and any other advice would help me a lot. Thank you very much in advance! :)
