Fall of the Akiawenrahk river
Excellent site to observe the rich plant life and to see fossils dating back over 455 millions years
Measuring 28 metres, Kabir Kouba Falls, whose name means « The river of a thousand meanders », are on the Akiawenrahk (Saint-Charles) River and fall to the rocks of the Canadian Shield directly below.
The surrounding canyon is 42 metres deep, and can be viewed from footpaths in the Parc de la Falaise along the river and through the woods. This is an excellent site to observe the rich plant life and to see fossils dating back over 455 millions years. Many Huron-Wendat myths and legends are associated with the site.
