Shimen Reservoir, Taoyuan
(3.8/5 based on 80+ 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.

  • This is great place to bring friends who live in city centers. I visit this place 3 to 4 times a year to relax and walk with friends. This reservoir supplies water to Taoyuan city. 
  • 每年天氣變冷時,這裡有很多處可以看楓葉,其實這樣變色(紅)的葉子不是楓,別管那麼多,來看風景。 現在變地寧靜說多,五月份也是賞螢火蟲的好去處,石門山也是當地人最愛的去處。 
  • 除了大溪復興,這裡應算是桃園指標性的景點,各季節來都有不同感受,比較特別的是他的日出照,可以參考網路上其他人分享的。這次因為超級月亮過來,雖然沒看到特別的月亮,但勾起不少以前的回憶,這裡跟十多年前差不多,沒什麼大改變
