Lake O'Hara remains a paradise inaccessible to general access, due to a very strict quota system to keep human activity low; it is so well protected to preserve its fragile alpine environment. I was so lucky to get a booking for the camping ground there.

As I hiked around the lake, the waters were so calm with a mirror reflection of the snow-capped peaks of the Canadian Rockies mountain range. Lake O’Hara must be one of the most beautiful alpine glacial lakes in Canada.
