Buffalo jump in Alberta ?

Is that area where the Indians used to herd the buffalo off the cliff edge in Alberta. If not where is it and is it worth seeing.

Cheers.

Head-Smashed-in Buffalo Jump is an example of such an area. This world heritage site and interpretive centre is worth a visit if you're in the area (1.5-2 hours south of Calgary).

This site is very worthy of a stop. I would allow 2 to 4 hours to tour the site.

I have a page on this site on my personal travel pages, if you're interested, here's the link:

I don't know what happened there, but that is not the correct link to the page. Here is the correct link:
