Sun Moon Lake,
a famous sightseeing spot with beautiful scene and humanities culture in Taiwan.
Sun Moon Lake, Nantou –a must visit sightseeing spot in central Taiwan.
Sun Moon Lake is located in central Taiwan, which is crowned as one of the Eight Wonders of Taiwan. The Sun Moon Lake scenic area got its name from the unique terrain that looked like a sun on one side and a crescent moon on the other. Sun Moon Lake is the largest natural alpine lake in Taiwan with rapidly changed scenes, that’s why Sun Moon Lake has been one of Lala’s favorite traveling spot.
There’re some selections to browse the lake by boat, it usually takes about 2 hour per tour if you rent Rowing Boats at the harbor, and it’s a good choice to enjoy the scene of Sun Moon Lake with your companions. Or, you can also buy a One-Day Pass ticket take shuttle boats to visit all of the tourist attractions, which is valid for unlimited tours from the first use until the end of service in a single day. It costs about NT$ 100 (about RMB 20 / MYR 15 / IDR 35 ribu) for each person, the schedule is about 30mins to 60mins per boat.
*Notice : There are several companies run their shuttle boats business here, the tickets are not interchangeable and the price is quite messy. Some of them even cost TWD 300 (about RMB 60 / MYR 45 / IDR 105 ribu) for one ticket, thus there’s a big range for bargain. Lala suggests you to make some survey before you start your lake cruising.
There are 14 lakeside trails in Sun Moon Lake, some of them are built along the lake and the others make extension besides the mountain. One of them called “The Holy Mountain in Sun Moon Lake”named Shueishe Lakeside Trail, which is allowing people to observe the lake close-up. It is the spiritual indicator for Sun Moon Lake.
The lake cycling trail has been recognized by CNNGO, CNN as one of the most beautiful cycling trails in the world. It is the only bicycle trail above the river in Taiwan, this is the most recommend for having a bicycle riding in Sun Moon Lake by iGUIDE Lala.
When you’re having a bicycle tour, you’ll pass through Waterfront Wedding Square, TongXin Bridge, YangJie Bridge. Heart shaped gazebo. It’s leisurely to enjoy the beauty scene of Sun Moon Lake.
