Day 18.2 – Driving into Rockies, Banff National Park – Lake Louise

Finally, we arrived at Lake Louise. Being may be the most famous attraction in the Rockies, it is a must-visit place for every tourists. Indeed, it is really beautiful. The lake itself is 2 km long, 0.5km wide, 90m deep, it is situated at the center of Banff National Park. Today, we arrived. Although it was nearly 7:30PM already, we still would like to drive here to look at it. We simply couldn’t wait anymore!

So, we drove back to the HI Lake Louise Hostel. I can tell it was a very good hostel which is perfectly situated next to Lake Louise (5-10 mins drive) and close to the supermarket (1min drive). We were staying here for 2 days.

We were staying in a 6-bed dorm. But no one is going to share with us! Fantastic!

There is one double bed on top.


Nice day! Can’t wait for tomorrow unexpected experience! Tell you guys a little secret, Lake Louise is not the most beautiful lake we saw in this trip. The most beautiful lake will be visited tomorrow. Stick to my blog and see!
