The lake is widely known for its spectacular turquoise colour and beautiful mountain scenery. Lake Louise owes its vibrant colour to fine rock particles called rock flour, created by the shifting of the Victoria Glacier. These particles are suspended in the glacier water and reflect the bright turquoise colour.
