This Surreal Waterfall Taller Than Niagara Falls Is Only A Few Hours From Vancouver

This hidden gem is a must-see.

If you love to do the opposite of what TLC sings and go chasing waterfalls, we've found a B.C. beauty that is a must-add to your bucket list. 

Oh you thought Niagara Falls was tall? Wait till you see this wonder — it's around three times the height of Niagara Falls. Helmecken Falls is the fourth tallest waterfall in all of Canada.

Standing at 141 m (463 ft) tall, you can experience the power of the falls up and personal through an 8 km hike. If you're not one from hiking or just want to see the falls in it's entirety, there's a public viewing platform that you can easily drive and park by.

Located around a five hour drive away at Wells Gray Provincial Park, this falls is a hidden gem. And Helmcken Falls isn't even the only awe-inducing waterfall at Wells Gray Provincial Park.

In it's 1.3 million acres of PNW wilderness, the provincial park boasts an impressive number of 39 named waterfalls. Wells Gray is open all year-round, so you can experience it's beauty in every season.

There are so many outdoor activities to choose from — you can chase waterfalls, explore mineral springs and glaciers, hike, kayak, go backcountry camping and more. There is also a lake that is picture perfect: Murtle Lake, where you can go take a dip, go for a kayak or canoe paddle, or just kick back.
