Sun Moon Lake holidays

Sun Moon Lake Surrounded by green mountains is one of the main national parks and the largest natural lake in Taiwan. The Eastern part of the lake is round like the sun, while the Western part is shaped like a crescent moon. In the middle of the lake (between the “sun” and the “moon”) is an island which has long been a sacred place for the Shao people. This island (Lalu) is off-limits to visitors; only the Shao people can go there to worship their ancestors. The beauty of Sun Moon Lake is found in the surrounding mountains. From the lake, tier upon tier of countless peaks can be seen rising up into the sky. The nearby mountains appear dark with vegetation. The mountains that echo farther and farther away appear less and less distinct until they fade into the sky.
