Located in southeastern British Columbia, near the Alberta border, Kootenay National Park is one of seven contiguous parks that make up the Canadian Rocky Mountains UNESCO World Heritage Site (together with Jasper, Yoho, and Banff National Parks and Mount Robson, Hamber and Mount Assiniboine Provincial Parks).
Part of the spectacular Canadian Rocky Mountains, located in the southeast corner of British Columbia, Yoho National Park is bordered by two other national parks: Kootenay to the south and Banff to the east. Together, they were declared one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
At 3,954 meters (12,972 feet), Mount Robson is the highest peak in the Canadian Rockies and the second oldest provincial park in BC. Because of its size ( and unexpected changes in weather and snow conditions), only experienced and equipped climbers should attempt climbing this mountain.
