Rescuers survey the cliff face of Shannon Falls Provincial Park as the rescue mission unfolds

Two popular travel vloggers and one of the men's girlfriends have died at a Canadian tourist hotspot after plunging 30 metres in a waterfall accident.

Three popular Youtube video bloggers who documented their travel adventures around the world have died after plunging nearly 30 metres off Shannon Falls in Canada.

The travel blog is encouraging people to respect the privacy of their families and loved ones, but also to use the hashtag #HOLinsipired to mention all the ways High on Life has inspired them.

Last year, Gamble, Lyakh and another group member were banned from US federal land for five years after pleading guilty to walking on a sensitive hot spring in Yellowstone National Park and other crimes at parks across the west of America.

Gamble and Lyakh had made headlines before after they broke rules at Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming for a series of photos and spent seven days in jail, according to CBC News.

"Her boyfriend and then another friend attempted to save her", Willcox said, adding friends of the victims reported seeing them carried over the lip of one pool and into a second.

The trio had hiked up Shannon Falls and went in one of the pool systems to swim, the Vancouver Sun reports.

The High on Life group has previously been criticised for posting videos - heavily labelled with warnings - of apparently risky stunts.

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

"Every year seems to be busier and busier", he said.

Banks described the terrain as "difficult, very unsafe, and the water flow is heavy which is complicating the search".

RCMP Cpl. Sascha Banks of the Squamish detachment said the pools are not accessible by side trails in the area that is extremely risky.

After swimming in a pool at the top, the trio had walked along a ledge at the top of the falls before falling approximately 100 feet over the edge.

"These pool systems, unless you have the right equipment with you, unless you understand the area, that you're safe about doing it, you should not be up there".

Squamish Mayor Patricia Heintzman said in an interview she hoped the increasing numbers of people visiting the backcountry would come prepared.
