Highlights
  • Mount Saint Elias is the 2nd highest mountain in both the United States and Canada on the Yukon and Alaska border.
  • Lies about 25 miles southwest of Mount Logan, the highest mountain in Canada.
  • The Canadian side is part of Kluane National Park, while the U.S. side is within Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve.
  • Notable for being the highest peak in the world so close to tidewater; its summit rises only 10 miles from the head of Taan Fjord, off of Icy Bay. This gives the peak immense vertical relief, comparable to that of Denali or peaks in the Himalayas.
