The highlight of the Sambaa Deh Falls Territorial Park are the two waterfalls. First is the Sambaa Falls and further down Trout River is the Coral Falls. Sambaa Deh is Slavey (First Nation language) for Trout River. Coral Falls received its name because of the fossil rock which washes down the river
The Nahanni Park is 4,766 square kilometres. It is a watershed environment which falls within the boundaries of the Greater Nahanni Eco System. There are white water rivers, alpine lakes, deep canyons, mountain peaks, wildflower valleys, waterfalls, hot springs and wildlife.
