And the great part is there’s plenty of places to stop, get off your bike, and admire the lake. I feel like I’m right inside a beautiful Chinese painting.

I’ve never seen anything quite like it. And it has all these formations from years and years of erosion of wind and water. Whew! I love Taiwan! More than half of Taiwan is mountainous and heavily forested, so it’s a great place to get off the beaten path and get lost.
