Sun Moon Lake, Nantou

(3.8/5 based on 1,700+ reviews on the web)
Famed for its sparkling blue waters set against a mountainous backdrop, Sun Moon Lake represents Taiwan's largest body of water. Hike the surrounding trails, which lead to interesting sites like a Chinese style pagoda, Thao villages, and a grand temple. You can also take a boat tour to visit Lalu Island, which aboriginal locals consider a sacred place. Generally quiet and off the beaten path, the area around the lake comes to life during festivities, which include laser shows, concerts, and fireworks. Put Sun Moon Lake into our Nantou vacation generator to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Nantou.

  • 這裡是國外觀光客都知道的知名景點!尤其是中國大陸的遊客特別喜歡來到這裡,現在大陸人不來了,跟著觀光品質也提升很多!希望大家都能過去參觀  more »
  • Taiwan has lots of place to visit and lots of tasting food that I like. In April is good time to visit , because it it is not too hot.  more »
  • We spent the day visiting the villages of the region. With a boat ticket you can visit all the ports (200 Yuan). Street food and shops. We get a lot of rain (April). Don't come at this time.
