A beautiful picture of Moraine Lake, which is a glacially fed lake in Banff National Park, 14 kilometres outside the Village of Lake Louise, Alberta, Canada. It is situated in the Valley of the Ten Peaks, at an elevation of approximately 6,183 feet.
This glacier-fed lake becomes the most intense and vivid shade of turquoise blue. The setting of the surrounding majestic mountain peaks makes the scene almost surreal.
Best Time To Visit Moraine Lake?
When the road first opens in May don’t count on seeing the turquoise water that Moraine Lake is famous for. The lake sits at a high elevation of 1883 meters. It can remain frozen until late May or into June depending on the temperatures. The water level remains low until the glacier above the lake starts to melt. It usually crests by late June or early July.
If you want warmer weather and the best chance to see the beautiful water the time to visit is from late June to August. The water color can usually be enjoyed through to the time of the road closure in early October.
