a place of extraordinary beauty
Takakia Lake is located within the Moresby Lake
watershed, approximately 2 km east of Moresby Lake, and
approximately 500 m higher in elevation than Moresby
Lake. Takakia Lake is situated in a former glacial cirque
589metres above mean sea level. The terrain surrounding
the lake is rugged and the valley below the lake drops off
steeply in westerly direction to Moresby Lake. The outlet
creek draining Takakia Lake (Takakia Lake Creek) drops
over a series of waterfalls and cascades on its way to
Moresby Lake. Moresby Lake then drains via a steep
mountainous creek into the head of Mitchell Inlet.
Vegetation surrounding the lake is sparse with a few
scattered conifers and low-growing herbaceous
vegetation. Much of the area surrounding the lake consists
of exposed bedrock.
