Nahanni, Northwest Territories
Nahanni National Park Reserve, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is in the Dehcho Region of Northwest Territories, 500 km west of Yellowknife, a part of the Mackenzie Mountains Natural Region.
It is an outstanding example of northern wilderness rivers, canyons, gorges and alpine tundra, with a total area of 4766 sqare kilometers, centred on the river valleys of the South Nahanni and Flat rivers.
The silt-laden waters of the South Nahanni meander through scenic mountain valleys and hurtle through a series of deep canyons before calming and joining the Liard River at Nahanni Butte. This dramatic change in character, along with the varied and spectacular terrain that it passes through, have given the South Nahanni its international reputation as a premier wilderness river.
