Sun Moon Lake can be said to be fun to play in three ways: water, land, and air! Apart fromTake a boat,SUP stand up paddle to enjoy the lake view、If you take the aerial tramway, you must also experience the "Top Ten Most Beautiful Bike Paths in the World" rated by CNN. This time we also came to experience this name, but unfortunately, when we visited (2021/03), we were experiencing water shortage, the water level was relatively low, and there were many dry areas. But the overall cycling around the lake is still very comfortable, and the route is not long, it is very suitable for beginners to experience!
We went to Sun Moon Lake for cycling in March and May, and compiled a short video of the ride in May for everyone?

Sun Moon Lake Bike｜Ride Route
The Sun Moon Lake Bicycle Path is well planned, and the whole journey is very safe to ride. We are the section of the road with the most people riding on Sun Moon Lake (Xiangshan section), Xiangshan-Shuishe Wharf section, if you only ride a bicycle for about half an hour, plus take pictures and stay for about an hour.
Forever knot bridge and concentric bridge
At the beginning, you will first enter the Tongxin Bridge, and then to the Yongjie Bridge. There are many shaded places on this section of the road, it is cool and comfortable to ride, the slope is very gentle, it will not be too tired to ride, it is very suitable for parents and children to ride together! There will also be many platforms along the way to provide viewing and rest, so you might as well stop and press the shutter when you see the beauty!
Riding and riding, you will come to the most beautiful Shuishe Dam in this section. One side of this wooden plank road is the road where cars and motorcycles walk, and the other is a slope, so there is a signCan only lead a car to pass by.Looking at Sun Moon Lake from here, you can see the mountains after the calm lake. It is very pleasant to walk down, but you can also see that the water level of Sun Moon Lake has become very low, and most of the small islands that originally sank in the pool have gradually emerged.
Water bike lane
I was looking forward to the water bike lane becoming less beautiful due to the drought.Part of the bicycle path from Shuishe Dam to Longfeng Palace is framed on the water, Passing by homes and shops on the way, it seems to be floating above Sun Moon Lake, with beautiful lake views on both sides. Because the water shortage is too serious, in addition to exposing the dry loess, it even grows green grass?
Xiangshan Visitor Center
On the return trip, we rode down a little further and came to the unique lookingXiangshan Visitor Center, You can see Sun Moon Lake from the slope onto the roof. The beautiful clear water model building is full of good spots for taking pictures on the Internet. You can also have a drink at the nearby Huisun Coffee and take a break with ice, and spend this afternoon comfortably!
The above is our experience of riding the bike path (Xiangshan Visitor Center-Shuishe Pier) in Sun Moon Lake this time. The whole road will not be too tired to ride, and it will not be too dry under the shade of the trees. It is a pity that we did not see it this time. Going to the sparkling Sun Moon Lake, but the dry lake scene recorded also reminds us to cherish water resources from time to time, and if we have the opportunity, we must come back to experience the full water of Sun Moon Lake again, and feel this section of the world's most beautiful bicycle path again!
