Image of Destruction Bay

Situated along the western shore of Kluane Lake, the largest lake in the Yukon, is Destruction Bay. It is located in the Shakwak valley, on the perimeter of Kluane National Park and the Tachal Region. Destruction Bay is on the Alaska Highway about 276 kilometres from Whitehorse and 108 km northwest of Haines Junction.

Destruction Bay has a much shorter history. It was established as a centre for construction and maintenance on the Alaska Highway, and that remains its primary role today.
