Fleur de Chine Hotel, Sun Moon Lake, Taiwan

Sun Moon Lake

Sun Moon Lake and Ci En Pagoda on the hill

Sun Moon Lake 日月潭 is the largest body of water in Taiwan as well as a tourist attraction. Sun Moon Lake is home
to the Thao tribe, one of the aboriginal tribes of Taiwan. The east side toward the lake resembles a sun while the west side
resembles a moon, hence the name. Several hydroelectric power plants have been built in the Sun Moon Lake since 1919,
including Mingtan Pumped Storage Hydro Power Plant and the Station. When the first plant was finished in 1934,
it was considered to be one of the most important infrastructure constructions at that time.

However, due to the Japanese government plan to generate electricity using the lake, they built a dam and made
the water level raised up. After the handover of Taiwan from Japan to the Republic of China in 1945, the government
spent money to develop the tourism industry of the lake area. The lake and its surrounding countryside have been
designated one of thirteen national scenic areas in Taiwan.
