A view of Wedgemount Lake in British Columbia

It’s located in near Whistler British Columbia. The hike is only 14km round trip to the Wedgemount Lake, but very tough as the trail climbs more than 1400-meters and the scramble up the final section feels like you’re going straight up a wall. The reward is what's in the pic and worth it though as the turquoise lake situated in the bowl with a glacier at the far end of the lake is nothing short of spectacular. There is also a hut/campsite spots at the lake for those willing to stay overnight.
