Glacier National Park Travel Guide

Located in the north-western corner of Montana, among the Rocky Mountains, Glacier National Park is true to its name- it has more glaciers than you could shake a stick at. Glacier lies adjacent to Canada's Waterton Lakes National Park and is a part of the transnational Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park, the first of its kind in the world. All the region's glaciers lie within the Glacier Park, in the high Rockies. Peaks such as Triple Divide, Elk, and Summit are a maze of precipitous slopes, crags and cliffs through which meander slow rivers of ice, making their ponderous way south to the lakes and rivers of the lowlands.

About 50 glaciers exist in Glacier National Park, and it is from these that the park's 200-odd lakes and streams arise.

Entry Permits Visitors to the park need to pay an entrance fee of US$ 5 for a single-entry permit valid for a week in both Waterton and Glacier. An extra charge of US$ 10 has to be paid for a private non-commercial vehicle.

American citizens are eligible for lifetime passes, which allow entry to all the national parks in the country. These passes are free for those with permanent disabilities, and cost a nominal amount- between US$10 and 50- for everybody else.
