Vermilion Pass

A scenic paved road to Vermilion Pass

Vermilion Pass is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 1.647m (5,403ft) above the sea level, located on the border of Alberta and British Columbia, in Canada.

Nestled in the Canadian Rockies, within the Kootenay National Park, the scenic road to the summit is totally paved. It’s called Highway 93 (Banff-Windermere Highway).

The pass is 105 km (65 miles) long, running west-northeast from Radium Hot Springs (in the East Kootenay region of British Columbia) to Castle Junction (in Banff National Park, Alberta). The pass takes its name from the mineral springs of iron oxide located 9 km SW of the pass.
