Mount Perren is located on the boundary of Banff National Park and Kootenay National Park near the Lake Louise area. It is situated in the Valley of the Ten Peaks, or Wenkchemna Valley. It is part of the Bow Range and Wenkchemna Peaks which tower above Moraine Lake. Postcard and calendar images of Moraine Lake usually show Mount Perren as a backdrop to the lake as it sharply rises over 1000 meters above the lake between Mount Bowlen to its east and Mount Allen to its west. Mount Perren is named for Walter Perren who was a mountain guide in the area and later a park warden.
