As tiring as the trek to Lake Agnes can be even for the experienced hikers, the view of the pine trees and the mountains reflected in the water is more than rewarding. You can visit a teahouse located at an elevation of 2,134 m (7,002 ft), a favorite resting place for numerous visitors to this area.

  • A great one hour hike brings you up to this incredible destination 350 m above Lake Louise. Plenty of hiking options from here including the Little Beehive, the summit of Mount St. Piran, the top of the Big Beehive and for those with lots of gas in the tank, a second Tea House above the Plain of the Six Glacier. I have a special place in my heart for this spot as this is the spot I proposed to my wife.
  • Another beautiful lake and a nice hike to get there. A little difficult but not too bad. I thought it was the most populated trail in the area.
