Travellers of the Alaska Highway don’t often slate enough time to explore Muncho Lake. They may camp for the evening, stop to photograph the stone sheep or caribou often spotted along the highway but there are so many canyons and mountain peaks easily accessible from the highway. And because people underestimate the potential for adventure, you are almost guaranteed solitude. Even the provincial website fails to capture the magic of Muncho Lake. The hikes are varied, from short jaunts to multi-day, choose-your-own adventure types. Then there’s the paddling and the fishing or simply sitting on the shores of Muncho Lake and watching how light and shade can change the mood of the landscape.
