Higher than Niagara Falls!

320px-montmorency_falls_01Canada boasts so many beautiful locations, for tourists and visitors alike.  We are all familiar with Niagara Falls, which borders Canada and the United States.  But in Quebec, there is a special gem called Montmorency Falls and is 30 meters higher than Niagara Falls!

It is at the junction of Montmorency River and the St. Lawrence River, about 10 kilometres east of Quebec City.  It has captured people’s fascination and awe since the years of Champlain.  Like most of Canada’s geography, there is a different experience to be had if you visit in the summer or in the winter.  The following videos can show you its beauty more than my words ever could.  Enjoy them.

      • It is certainly worth a visit. I suppose Niagara Falls is still tops because it covers a bigger area and has much larger volume of water but Montmorency has its own charm. When I was there though, there was not so much water but the wind was gusting and we got seriously wet from the spray.
