Kluane Lake is located in the southwest area of the Yukon. At approximately 400 km2 (150 sq mi), and 70 km (43 mi) long, it is the largest lake contained entirely within the territorial border.
Kluane Lake is fed by the A'ay Chu, which is composed of meltwater from the Kaskawulsh Glacier, located within Kluane National Park. It drains into the Kluane River, whose waters flow into the Donjek River, White River, Yukon River, and eventually the Bering Sea.
The Alaska Highway follows most of Kluane Lake's southern border, and the drive offers many spectacular views of the lake. The Yukon communities of Burwash Landing and Destruction Bay are located on the southern shore of the lake. The lake is also known for its whitefish and lake trout fishing.
