In 1980, a Tibetan monk was sent by his master to Vidette Lake in the Deadman Valley, to help determine whether this location could be the centre of the universe. The monk stayed at the Vidette Vidette Lake Nature Retreat, a former 1860’s Fur Trading Post. Further tests conducted by a group of monks in 1984 and 1988 led to the conclusion that the centre of the universe was located on the resort’s property. It continues to be a site of pilgrimage for Tibetan monks. Call the resort in advance to book a tour of the “Centre of the Universe”.
Situated in the Castle Rock Hoodoos Provincial Park, these spectacular formations are some of the finest examples of hoodoos that can be seen from a public roadway in British Columbia. According to ancient First Nations folklore, the hoodoos represent invading warriors who broke a promise and were turned to stone. Due to erosion, please admire the hoodoos from a distance to help preserve them for future generations.
Visit the Deadman Falls, a spectacular display of water cascading down 200 feet into a narrow canyon. The falls are approximately 5km north of the Vidette Lake Nature Retreat on the Deadman Vidette Road.
