Sun Moon Lake is the largest and most beautiful alpine lake in Taiwan.Its beauty is like a strand of bright pearls shimmering in the midst of Taiwan.The mist-laden water and the constant changes of thick and dispersing clouds and fog create a mood of a fantasy fairyland.Depending on the seasons and time of day, perhaps the scenes might remind you of a sketch, a colorful watercolor painting, or a Chinese landscape painting.Visitors are often enthralled by the refreshingly beautiful and elegant landscapes here.
The beauty of the lake, from dawn to dusk and from season to season, exudes an aura of enchantment regardless of whether it is bathed in sunlight and blue sky or shrouded in mist.Consequently, visitors find themselves in the amazement of stunning landscape accompanied by the chirping sounds of birds and the delightful fragrance of flowers.
In the early morning, a thin veil of mist creating a sense of hazy dreaminess covers the surface of the lake.When the sun rises over the mountains, the obscuring mist lifts slowly to reveal the contour of the lake, reflecting images of surrounding mountains as birds chirp and glide gracefully.At dusk,the colors of the setting sun are like a sprinkling of golden dust, transforming it into a romantic paradise.As the night falls, the flickering lights of fishing boats, shining stars and dancing fireflies reflect their shimmer on the rippling lake as cool evening breezes waft in.Such an image has been described as a mischievous fairy illuminating the lake with her lantern.
