Ice formations & natural beauty

Amazing, grandiose, majestic and timeless. Caves channeled out by melting glacier and icebergs floating in the melt water of the two glaciers, “Ghost” & “Angel”, makes this place a must see when in Jasper National Park. You can come up to this area and spend multiple days of exploration. The only catch is that, this area is a day use area unless you stay at the Edith Cavell Hostel.

These caves are more dangerous than it seems, with great caution and care when heading into this area. Constant rock and ice falls from the glacier. Avalanche is a big factor, specially when the temperature is warm. In year 2012, Ghost glacier plummeted into the lake below and unleashed a tidal wave that channeled the lower path and destroyed the entry of the parking lot. Luckily, it happened around 4 in the morning, where there was no people traffic in the area.
