Lake O'Hara _ Lake O'Hara is a lake at an elevation of 2,020m (6627 ft in the alpine area of Yoho National Park, in the province of British Columbia, on the western side of the Great Divide with the province of Alberta and Banff National Park to the east. The lake and the valley are accessible through a bus service that is run by Parks Canada or by an 11 km hike along a road with an elevation gain of approximately 500m. However, people who hike up the road are not guaranteed a bus ride down. People who have reservations have priority for the bus spots for the ride down. Reservations for the bus, for day use, can be made through the Parks Canada Reservation website. Campsite reservations can be made up to three months in advance through the Lake O'Hara reservation line. It is strongly recommended that visitors make reservations in advance, as the bus does fill up and standby bus spots are not sold the day of bus departures. _ photo credit: @braedin _ Please visit their gallery and show some @instagram LOVE! _ FOR FEATURES: Tag us in your pics, mention us in your captions or use the tag #earthfeed to your best nature pics _ FOLLOW us @earthfeed _ _ _ _ _ #adventure#earth#vscocam#forest#discovery#lake#sea#holiday#camping#vsco#mountains#wanderlust#travel#hiking
Throwback to one of the most memorable solo night hikes of my life- alpine route at Lake O’Hara. This was the scene waiting for me as I crested the initial climb to the top. Wow is all I could say to my self, I’m sure I will hold memories of that night for ever in high esteem.
Rain, low clouds, muddy trails, soggy tents, and squishy boots didn’t take one ounce of beauty away from this magical place tucked between peaks. Won the lottery this summer with two opportunities to visit Lake O’Hara... will be back for more soon!
Spent 3 days in BC's hidden gem and hardest to get campsite at Lake O'hara. It was raining most of the time and camping in the rain is not fun but it was still amazing to do some alpine hiking. Due to the government's strict control of how many people can come in everyday I got to enjoy the stunning lakes and viewpoints with almost no one around.
