Yoho is a Cree expression of awe at this spectacularly beautiful place. Yoho National Park was established in 1886 as part of the Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks system and encompasses 507 square miles or 1,310 square kilometers, occupying the western slopes of the Continental Divide of the Rocky Mountains in British Columbia.

Yoho National Park is the smallest of the four National Parks (Kootenay, Banff and Jasper being the others) and they combine to form the Rocky Mountain Parks UNESCO World Heritage Site, designated as such in 1984. The designation of a World Heritage Site recognizes the importance of the Rocky Mountain Parks to the entire world. In 1976, Parks Canada was given the distinction to implement the World Heritage Convention in Canada and by joining the Convention, Canada has pledged to care for the Rocky Mountain Parks system and to avoid deliberate actions that could damage the parks' ecosystems. ...More information below photos...

Yoho National Park is chock full of natural wonders from towering rock walls with waterfalls flowing over them to peaks which hide out in the clouds, their slopes cloaked in lush forest.

The Burgess Shale Formation is also found in Yoho National Park, a fossil rich area containing evidence of marine animals which dwelled here and date back 515 million years. The Burgess Shale Formation was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1981 and is included as part of the Rocky Mountain Parks System.
