Basics about Tangle Falls
The Tangle Falls located at the Jasper National Park in Alaska has a beautiful three-tier structure. Of the many waterfalls you get to see in Alaska, Tangle Falls is one of the lightest. Hence, it is better to visit the falls after a wet summer, when the precipitation helps to create a water supply for the falls. If you look closely, the topmost tier of the Tangle Falls is wide and it appears to be segmented by trees grown in front of them. So, you might not be able to shoot clear views of the entire falls. However, Tangle Falls is really easy to approach, thanks to the driveways running next to it. In fact, the highway is so close to the cascaded falls that you get the feeling that the water is directly spraying into the road. Do not feel disappointed if you do not have a clear photograph to bring back with you. You can always take a look at this vinyl fridge magnet featuring the Tangle Falls and have almost the same thrill as seeing it before your eyes.

The Tangle Waterfall drops about 114 feet and each of its three tiers are 14, 18 and 13 feet high. You need to climb up closer to the falls to catch a better angle to the falls. The best time to visit the falls in its full flow is from April to June. You can actually observe the separate braids joining up to form a single fall.
