Is it for you?
This is a moderate objective and while guests do not need to have any previous mountaineering experience, good hiking fitness is required.
As you gaze out from the summit of Mt Temple, the effort to get there becomes a distant memory. You’ll be amazed by the extraordinary views and the panorama of the far reaching mountains! Mt Temple is the most visible peak in the Lake Louise area and was the first of the Canadian Rockies' 11,000ers to be climbed back in 1894. The SW Face/Ridge is the ultimate scramble offering beautiful views of Paradise Valley and the Valley of the Ten Peaks. We begin our day surrounded by prominent cliffs and lofty peaks but once out of the trees, the views open up in all their splendour. Looking down through the larches, the radiant blue of Moraine Lake appears with nearby peaks reflected in the waters. Climbing this beginner 11'000er peak will 'peak' your interest and leave you wanting more.
