Backpacking expedition to Observation Mountain in Kluane National Park


Hike to the summit of Observation Mountain in Kluane National Park in the Yukon on this backpacking expedition. This hike starts at Ä’äy Chù (Slim River) and goes south for 22.5 km on a well kept path, along the west shore of Ä’äy Chù until reaching Canada Creek.

The path ends up at the creek, where there is also a remote camground. Most of the hikers choose to continue to follow the track and go through a path to reach a plateau which leads to the summit of Observation Mountain. This is the most common route followed by hikers and leads to spectacular views on the Kaskawulsh Glacier. Though the trail is easy to follow, it can be considered long and difficult and it also requires some orientation abilities Therefore, this hike is considered difficult.

Kluane National Park and Reserve of Canada covers an area of 21,980 square kilometers. It is a land of precipitous and high mountains, immense icefields and lush valleys that yield a diverse array of plants and wildlife species and provides for a host of outdoors activities. Kluane National Park and Reserve is also home to Mount Logan (5959 m/19 545 ft), Canada's highest peak. There is at least 105 bird species in this region, including the golden eagle, the bald eagle, the European golden plover and the Yellow Hammer. And there is also a good chance of seeing grizzly bear, mountain goat and Dall sheep.
