Famed for its sparkling blue waters set against a mountainous backdrop, Sun Moon Lake represents Taiwan's largest body of water. Hike the surrounding trails, which lead to interesting sites like a Chinese style pagoda, Thao villages, and a grand temple. You can also take a boat tour to visit Lalu Island, which aboriginal locals consider a sacred place. Generally quiet and off the beaten path, the area around the lake comes to life during festivities, which include laser shows, concerts, and fireworks.

Although the cycling track is very famous among the people; I really don't liked it much. The track is non continuous or may be I mistook the way. Often you have to look for some random cars coming on your way. However, I liked the lake and ride on the boat
A beautiful lake with few hiking trails around. You can go biking or just cruising the boat around the lake. Also a good place to view cherry blossom during spring.
