Chelan Falls is a historically significant waterfall along the Chelan River as it drops down the final gorge between Lake Chelan and the Columbia River. The river drops 350 feet from the lake to the Columbia, the falls are thought to comprise of about 2/3 of that vertical drop. Reports from kayakers suggest the series of cascades are made up of a dozen distinct drops of up to 20 feet each. Unfortunately due to the narrow confines of the canyon, not much of the falls can be easily seen, if at all. Photo © copyright by Robert Faucher.
