Shimen Reservoir, Daxi

4.0
#1 of 27 in Parks in Taoyuan
Walk over the great dam at Shimen Reservoir for panoramic views of the surrounding mountains. Head to the nearby park for cycling, walking, and picnics, or grab a bite at the Hakka restaurant offering highland cuisine. Bird-watchers should look out for the endemic Taiwan whistling thrush, Japanese white-eyes, light-vented bulbuls, and many other species (a museum in the vicinity exhibits descriptions and sightings of local birds). Dress warmly: the winds at this altitude can be harsh. Plan to visit Shimen Reservoir and other customer-reviewed, writer-recommended Daxi attractions using our Daxi road trip planning website .

  • Stone gate water is suitable to go, the difficulty is not very high, along the way there are trees cover shade, but more on the downhill, the wind scene is quite open, there is mountain semi-rotary water, if the flower, the wind landscape more beautiful.

  • Shimen Dam, to translate, is the Stone Gate Dam. I am often slightly puzzled about why the local people are attracted to the Dam, because it i s not all that scenic and water appears to be quite dirty...  more »
  • The water supply area of the stone gate is not only the peach garden, but also the new north and Hsinchu, from the small to the good mountain and the water of the rest field, regardless of the spring-du Huan; summer-Tong Hua, autumn-maple red, winter-live fish to recharge, often make a stream of forget to return, close to the stone Gate Mountain is a mountain, sprinkled sweat of good fun, regardless of the usual quiet silence or holiday of the noisy rushing, Always let people want to go again ...
