Canadian Rockies

Located on the western coast of Canada, the Canadian Rockies comprise the Canadian segment of the North American Rocky Mountains range.

 

The Canadian Rockies have numerous high peaks and ranges, such as Mount Robson with 3.954 metres and Mount Columbia with 3.747 metres, and are composed of shale and limestone, unlike their American cousins.

 

Mount Robson with 3.954 metres is the highest peak in the Canadian Rockies and is particularly impressive because it stands out on the continental divide towering over Yellowhead Pass, one of the lowest passes in the Canadian Rockies, and is close to the Yellowhead Highway.

 

5 national parks are located within the Canadian Rockies, four of which interlock and make up the Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks World Heritage Site. These four parks are Banff, Jasper, Kootenay and Yoho. The national park not included in the World Heritage Site is Waterton, which does not interlock with the others and lies farther south, along the international boundary.

 

Together, all these national parks were declared a single UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984 for the unique mountain landscapes found there, comprising peaks, glaciers, lakes, waterfalls, canyons and limestone caves as well as fossils.
