    Da Kų Cultural Centre -
Our House
Make the incredible Da Kų Cultural Centre your first stop in Haines Junction on your Kluane Country adventure. Da Kų, meaning ‘Our House’, in Southern Tutchone, is
a welcoming, educational centre where you can learn about the traditions, history and culture of
the Champagne and Aishihik First Nations. The Parks Canada Kluane National Park Visitor Information Centre and the Yukon Visitor Information Centre are also located in Da Ku Cultural Centre. There you can view pieces of art from the Yukon Permanent Art Collection and gather useful information about Kluane and the Yukon. It is recommended to spend a couple of hours here and admission is free.
Kathleen Lake
Located just 24 kms from Haines Junction on the Haines Road, this pristine mountain lake is an amazing spot to camp for a few days or simply spend the afternoon sitting by the lake gazing up at King’s Throne – an epic hike up into an alpine cirque formed by glacial erosion above Kathleen Lake. There is a day use area, a 39-site campground, a boat launch and the Kokanee Trail, which is a 0.5 km wheel chair accessible boardwalk that meanders along
the shores of the lake. If you want endless scenic lake and mountain views, hiking, paddling or fishing, Kathleen Lake is the place for you.
Kluane Museum
Visitors can enjoy world-class wildlife exhibits with dioramas depicting
natural habitat. Also displayed are Native clothing, tools and weapons of the Southern Tutchone people as well as minerals and gemstones that are found in the Yukon. A large parking lot with two entrances makes it easy for big rigs to pull through. Watch for the World’s Largest Gold pan located next to the museum.
Sheep Mountain - Thachäl Dhäl
You certainly can’t miss this impressive mountain located just beside the shores of Kluane Lake, approximately 74 kms north of Haines Junction, on the Alaska Highway. Known as Thachäl Dhäl,
it is the home and natural habitat of the Dall Sheep. Stop at the Thachäl Dhäl Visitor Information Centre and check out the exhibits as well as an

opportunity for sheep viewing. The Visitor Information Centre even has binoculars for your enhanced viewing experience. There is also information here about hiking in the area.
Mount Logan and the
Kluane Icefields
Kluane National Park is the humble home of Canada’s highest peak, Mount Logan, a staggering 19, 550 feet AND the world’s largest non- polar icefields. The best way to view these majestic natural icons is to take a flight-seeing tour leaving from the Haines Junction area. You won’t believe your eyes as you fly over these moving ancient icefields and catch a glimpse of the dramatic and monumental Mount Logan.
