日月潭景點地圖

Taiwan’s largest lake, Sun Moon Lake is located in the mountains of Nantou at the geographic centre of Taiwan island.

The name of the lake 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.

Nine Frog Acrobats statue

A statue of nine stacked frogs in Taiwan’s world famous Sun Moon Lake has long been regarded by the general public in Taiwan as a visual representation of the drought the country is facing, but the deputy chief of a state-owned power plant that manages the lake said the stacked frog is a mistaken indicator of the country’s drought conditions.

Yidashao Pier

This is one of two stops in our boat cruise at Sun Moon Lake. We were lucky to visit in a weekday. Streets were very pleasant to walk without crowds. Food stalls and souvenir shops were fun to be explored. A cute little town.
05

Shueishe Vistors Center

This is the drop off point for visitors from Taichung and Taipei. There's a MOS burger and Carton King steamboat in the building 2nd floor. Highly recommended to try both. There's a seating area overlooking Shuishe besides MOS burger - highly recommended to have a meal there. Carton King steamboat is very good.

Xiangshan Visitor Center

The building is amazing with a nice coffee terrace overlooking the lake. What is really worth the visit is the very nice trail back to Shiashe. This is around 3,4 kms (40 to 50mns if you take your time to take photos). You have to be aware that this is mainly a biking trail and a few people seem to be biking for the 1st time of their life.
08

Sun Moon Lake Antique Assam Tea Farm

The tea farm itself is very nice and scenic, and the No. 18 black tea is delicious. However, if you want a tour, you need to book it in advance, which we didn't know, and it could've made the experience much better.
09

Xuanzang Temple

Monk Xuanzang was the Holy Monk in the Tang dynasty. During the China-Japan War, Japanese took the Monk Xuanzang's remains away from Nanchin to the Tsen Temple of Saidama Ken in Japan. In 1955, the Monk Xuanzang's remains were returned back to the Xuanguang Temple. In 1965, the Monk Xuanzang's remains were moved to the Xuanzang Temple after the temple rebuilding. There is a bell in front of the main gate of the Xuanzang Temple. The bell is called "wake up bell." If you prefer quiet atmosphere, Xuanzang temple is the best places for you.

Ci-en Pagoda

Ci-en Pagoda is located on Sha Ba Lan Mountain near Sun Moon Lake. It was built by Chiang Kai-Shek in memory of his mother in 1971. The construction was very difficult because the materials had to be shipped over the lake and moved up the mountain. The Ci-en Pagoda is 46 meters in height and has become the famous landmark of Sun Moon Lake. Surrounding the tower are beautiful plants and trees and there are stone tables and chairs for visitors to take a rest. The Ci-en Pagoda overlooks Lalu Island and Sun Moon Lake.

The temple was built according to traditional Confucius style and has been well kept and maintained. The decorations are artistic and the scenery of Sun Moon Lake at the top of the temple is beautiful. Apart from the normal religious activities, tourists can explore the so-called "Year of Steps". There are 366 steps each representing one day of the year. You can find out who else have the same birthday as you.
