Enjoy the most special water, land and air experience at Sun Moon Lake. A beautiful alpine lake in the foothills of Taiwan’s Central Mountain range, Sun Moon Lake has a rich indigenous culture. The Formosan Aboriginal Culture Village is a theme park with a section dedicated to re creating indigenous villages. Here you can find centuries old handicrafts and weapons on display. The Sun Moon Lake Ropeway cable car offers magnificent views of the forested peaks, mountains and water. For the more adventurous there are some great foot trails to discover all that the area has to offer. Cycling is popular with visitors. Lalu Island separates the lake into a part shaped like a crescent moon and the other shaped like a round sun, thus the name Sun Moon Lake.
