"Turquoise Jewel" Jih-yueh T'an by chewy3326

Jih-yueh T'an Travel Guide: 25 reviews and 77 photos

Sun Moon Lake

Sun Moon Lake is one of the most spectacular places on the island of Taiwan. I visited it on a day trip from Taichung. The lake is very turquoise and beautiful in color.
Highlights at the lake included the Wen-Wu Temple (where this photo was taken), Xuanzang Temple, Tsin Pagoda, and the many small villages that ring the lake. While this photo may not show it, the blemish of Sun Moon Lake is unbridled development; near the lakeshore, you'll see dozens of hotels and buildings that mar the view.

    Shame about the weather but nevertheless, a beautiful spot. It must have been a lovely drive around the lake.

    Although the weather was not good, the pictures presented here are still very beautiful.
