Takakkaw Falls, situated just west of the Continental Divide in Yoho National Park, is Canada's second highest waterfall. One of the park's most prominent attractions, the falls are fed by snow and ice melt that originate in Daly Glacier in the Rocky Mountains and then course through a U-shaped hanging valley. The falls then cascade 254 m into the Yoho River below.
