It is protected by four deep canyons and Victoria Falls, which can boast it is twice as high as Niagara Falls. Due to its remoteness the land here in virtually unchanged or polluted by humans. The wildlife at Nahanni National Park are free to roam the wilderness without interference. There is also a bast limestone cave system, some with natural hot springs.
