Shimen Reservoir, Taoyuan

3.9
#2 of 16 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.

  • If you go to the stone Gate Water Library before 8 in the morning, the drive can be directly into the stone gate Water Library, so many early people will come to the water of the stone gate of the Green tree in the morning. Because the friend's Blue Coffee Gallery is next to the stone gate, we go to the maple King of the stone gate in almost every week and then go to the café to enjoy the gourmet and coffee! The beauty of nature is to be more intimate and healthy.
