The waterfalls is 83-metre-high (270 ft) falls
and is 30 metres (98 feet) higher than Niagara falls.
Montmorency Falls is located about 15 minutes east of the city of Quebec.
On the boardwalk to the falls, after we took a cable car ride to the top of the cliff.
Montmorency is the largest of a number of significant waterfalls along the Beaupre coast.
The falls are impressive, in their 272 foot drop from the top of the ridge into a deep
bowl-shaped basin at river level. A cable car takes visitors to the top for a hike to
viewing belvederes and the suspension bridge over the cascade at the top of the ridge.
From the top, the full impact of the 487 panoramic stairs down the bluff on opposite
side of the gorge can be seen. The stairway and lookouts seem precariously balanced
as they snake down the ridge but they're safe to descend. Views of the falls from various
platforms along the way are spectacular.

Falls and in the middle is the confluence of
of the two rivers.
