This waterfall has been confirmed by the World Waterfall Database, has been mapped and its height has been approximated but exact measurements have not yet been confirmed.
Common reference places the falls at 680 meters tall, but that figure seems to be a measurement from the lake above the falls to the floor of the valley and there are parts to that length of stream that are too shallow of gradient to be considered legitimate waterfall and / or do not contact the bedrock. We feel we've got a pretty solid estimate on the legit waterfall portion of this section of the stream.
HISTORY AND NAMES
- Also Known as: Qulitasaniakvik
- Schwartzenbach Falls is the Unofficial name of this waterfall
The Inuktitut name of the falls, Qulitasaniakvik, means "place to get caribou skins" - apparently referring to the valley above the falls being fruitful caribou hunting grounds.
While we've listed the falls as seasonal (solely because during the winter, they most likely freeze solid and hence, dry out completely because the glaciers aren't able to melt,) the falls are quite spectacular.
