Shimen Reservoir, Taoyuan

(3.8/5 based on 85+ reviews on the web)
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. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Shimen Reservoir and many more Taoyuan attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Taoyuan holiday planner.

  • 石門水庫的步道系統規劃的不錯,有平緩的路線也有階梯可以爬。12月已經沒有楓葉可以看了,或許是暖冬的關係,整個區域還是綠意盎然,是個散步的好地方。

  • 第二次騎車造訪石門勝景,很幸運又是好天氣。坐在觀景餐廳靠窗位置喝咖啡,遠望是藍天白雲和青山綠水,近看則有來自各地的遊客,很多閤家出動的組合,老中青幼都有,看著他們臉上的笑容,彷彿也是一道風景。 露天表演者不約而同都以薩克司風演奏為主,我們沿著水庫散步,20分鐘內就遇到至少三把薩克司風,演奏曲目多為早期的國台語流行歌,有點懷舊的氣氛,倒也滿有趣的。
