Scenic point of the Akiawenrahk
Our brand new scenic point!
The Parc de la Falaise et de la chute Kabir Kouba stretches a distance of 1.5 km on the St. Charles River. From the scenic view point or the walking trails, discover the majestic 28m high waterfall that rests in an impressive canyon where the cliff can reach a height of up to 42 m.
Called Kabir Kouba since 1995, an Algonquin name that means «River of a thousand bends and curves», the waterfall dates to the post-glacier era and flows directly on the Canadian Shield. Three old mills and a hydroelectric power plant are the witnesses of 200 years of industrial and cultural developments.
Geology, fossils, potholes, insects, fauna and flora are some other natural themes that you can discover during your visit.
