Shimen Reservoir, Taoyuan

(90+ reviews on the web)
Water Body
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.

  • One of the important dams in northern Taiwan, with an amazing landscape, boat trip etc., definitely worth to visit.  more »
  • 水庫風景區十分清幽範圍又大,適合來此地花個半天走走。除了柏油步道之外還有階梯步道,走累了有許多涼亭可以休息。走到水庫上方空地後可以欣賞大片湖景,假日常有人在此地表演,坐著喝杯咖啡靜靜品味風景或是乘坐賞湖船探索水庫全景。此地也離大溪老街、慈湖十分近,可以安排一日遊走走這三個地方。  more »
