Create an itinerary including Narada Falls
Narada Falls is a waterfall in Mount Rainier National Park, in the U.S. state of Washington. It is said to be the most popular, because the Mount Rainier Highway crosses the falls between its two tiers.

The waterfall drops 188 feet (57 m) in two tiers of 168 feet (51 m) and 20 feet (6.1 m). The upper tier is a horsetail that falls in several strands down a nearly sheer cliff, into a canyon that is perpendicular to it. The lower tier is a much smaller plunge. During the winter, the upper falls freezes and becomes a sheer 150 feet (46 m) of icicles, which attracts many ice climbers.

  • This is worth a stop/visit on your visit to Mt Rainier. There is a somewhat steep climb down a path to see the full waterfall but the view is worth the effort

  • Narada falls is on the way to mount Rainer paradise spot . You have to get into Rainer entrance spot which takes a longgggg time . We had to wait for about 1.30 hours to get in . Once you get in , everything is quick ! First stop to paradise is narada falls . Loved this falls . Parking is tight but is normally available . There is a small hike down trail, to view this falls . Tough for old people and strollers. There are few spots downstairs which is perfect for a photo spot ! Nice spot overall . 👍👍👍
  • In early summer this waterfall produces such a cooling effect! A short path leads to view the waterfall from a lower perspective. Beware the spray/ mist can be really cool and wet..ie protect your cameras! The parking lot is quite large but it can get busy. There are various trails one can also do in Winter from here, such as the Reflection lakes snowshoe. This is a great stop if the paradise lot is full and you after something chill. Rest rooms are also available. Enjoy!
