Popular travel vloggers in Canadian waterfall death plunge

High On Life also provided a link to a memorial fund for the three, which has a goal of raising $100,000, or around R1.4 million.

With nearly 500,000 subscribers on YouTube and 1.1 million on Instagram, High On Life featured Gamble and his team engaging in extreme activities like parkour, cliff jumping, giant rope swings, waterfall sliding, and kayaking all over the globe.

A YouTube star and two of his friends died after falling from one of the tallest waterfalls in British Columbia.

Vancouver-based Gamble and Lyakh formed High On Life with high school friend Parker Heuser after they travelled the world in 2012.

The travel and vlogging communities are mourning a major loss as it has been revealed that three of the "High on Life" YouTube travel vloggers passed away after they slipped and fell during a hike at a Canadian waterfall.

Underwater dive teams were at work on Wednesday undertaking a "complex recovery" of the bodies from a hard-to-access pool, according to an RCMP release.

The friend who set up the page wrote: "There are truly no words that can be said to ease the pain and the devastation that their families are all going through right now", before asking for donations for the family and requesting that fans use the page to share happy memories.

The remaining members of the group made an emotional tribute to their friends in a video on the High As Life YouTube page.

Family members of Ryker Gamble confirmed his passing to Postmedia in a statement.

They are known for posting death-defying videos on their page - including one titled, "Epic Cliff Jumping and Waterfall Slide (EXTREME DANGER)".

In 2016, Gamble and Lyakh were banned from a host of USA national parks - along another group co-founder Justis Price Brown - after walking on a sensitive hot spring in Yellowstone National Park.

Gamble and Lyakh pleaded guilty to heading off the walkway at the park and onto the Grand Prismatic Spring.

They shared an apology on Facebook writing: 'We got over zealous in our enthusiasm for this wonderful place. In an attempt to get the ideal shot, we acted in a way that doesn't reflect our respect for the environment we were trying to capture'.
