From the entrance building, a tunnel through the rock of Sulphur Mountain leads to the Cave and Basin, a National Historic Site and popular tourist attraction in the town of Banff, Alberta, Canada.
Before reaching the Cave and Basin, the ever present smell of Sulphur (for which the mountain is named) greets the visitor, indicating that the water has surfaced from great depths. In the case of the Cave and Basin, the Sulphur Mountain Thrust Fault is responsible for the water which surfaces here.
The hot springs and pools of the Cave and Basin have been a huge tourist attraction since the late 1800's because of their therapeutic and healing qualities.
