Nantou County is renowned for its tea plantations, which stretch as far as the eye can see. However, the real pride of the county is the Sun Moon Lake; an ethereally beautiful lake located in the Yuchi Township. The biggest lake in all of Taiwan, its name is derived from the fact that it is divided into 2 by the small Lalu Island. One half of the lake resembles the spherical sun while the other looks like a crescent moon.
During your stay, you can visit the historical and cultural sites around the lake or take a stroll along the many hiking trails there. Nantou County is rich in history and its background is every bit as charming as its locals.
