Sun Moon Lake [日月潭]
During my parents’ visit to Taiwan I took them to the Formosan Aboriginal Culture Village for this year’s Cherry Blossom Festival [九族櫻花祭]. While there, we rode the Sun Moon Lake Ropeway [日月潭纜車] to Sun Moon Lake and back. Tickets for the ropeway were included with admission to the Aboriginal Culture Village. The ropeway is about 1.8 kilometers in length and gives visitors a bird’s-eye perspective of the area’s lovely scenery. I’ve heard of people waiting several hours on weekends to ride the ropeway; luckily, we visited on a weekday and waited roughly a half-an-hour.

We took my parents and brother on a day trip to Sun Moon Lake a few days before the wedding. We couldn’t have asked for a nicer day: it was sunny, reasonably warm, and crowd-free thanks to it being a non-holiday weekday.
Sun Moon Lake’s Wenwu Temple. I should have laid down for this shot.
Since not many trees in Taiwan have leaves that change colors with the change of the seasons, I was quite delighted to see this during my last visit to Sun Moon Lake.
