Close

Situated three hours south of Tainan in the Yuchi Township of Nantou County, Sun Moon Lake has one of the island’s most beautiful natural landscapes is the largest body of freshwater in Taiwan.

The name is inspired by the beauty of the area. The east side of the lake is round, like the sun, while the west side is long and narrow, like a crescent moon.

The lake is backed by high-forested mountains and boasts good weather year-round despite an altitude of 762m. On the lake, boating is popular, especially in rowing boats, as is hiking and biking around the lake.

Sun Moon Lake has been designated one of 13 national scenic areas in Taiwan. Sun Moon Lake is also home to the Holy Monk Shrine, Cien Pagoda and the aboriginal village of Tehua.
