Cliff Jumping at Lake Tahoe | Angora Lake
What is Cliff Jumping?
Cliff jumping is as literally as it sounds, jumping off a cliff; preferably into the water.
You must be thinking, ‘oh that sounds very dangerous’ and yea you are right, IT IS very dangerous.
But if you are an adrenaline junkie like me, this is one of the coolest & free adventures.

It is a freaking huge freshwater lake, in the border if California and Nevada. Look at how stunning it looks, why wouldn’t anyone want to go there.
Being in the driving distance from San Fransisco, it attracts a high number of visitor.
Things to do in Lake Tahoe
Hidden from all these, there is Cliff Jumping. This is only for the brave hearts who are looking for some crazy adventure.
If you ask anyone working at the park, “where is the cliff jumping place?” the answer would be “I know the place, but I’m not allowed to tell you.” It was very hard for us to figure out where that is.
The cliff jumping place is not exactly in Lake Tahoe, but at an adjacent lake called Angora Lake
This is place is literally hidden. Mostly the road that leads to the lake is not an actual road, you have to go through the muddy hilly road. It’s 1 miles from the South Lake Tahoe.
Hike to Angora Lake
Once you park your car, you got to hike around 1.5 miles from the parking lot.
Don’t be mistaken, there are two small lakes adjacent to each other, the cliff jumping in on the 2nd one.
The first lake is no lesser beauty as such.
Cliff Jumping Guide – Angora Lake
After a small hike you reach this beautiful lake, but what next??
There are 2 ways to reach the cliff
The Hard Way
There is a hike along the shore which leads to the hill from where you can jump.
But the problem is, there is no proper trail so you just have to figure out your way to reach the hill, and after the jump, you have to swim all the way back to the shore.
Oh boy!! that’s a long way to swim. It almost drains all your energy.
The Easy Way
Luckily there is an easy way as well.
There are kayak’s & row boats available for rental. So you can just rent them & use to go near the hill.
There is a small rock climbing involved though, but it is a lot better than the hike & swimming.
