It is written up as a ride around the lake. It is not.. path ends. You have to ride on the road, which is OK. Some of the cycle path is very steep. It is also badly signed for an English reader. If you have...More

Don't bother going there on weekends, such as Sundays as it is so busy that everyone is pushing their bikes or rented bicycles, rather than cycling on the bikeways. In this way, it then loses the original purpose of the bikeway.

The bikeway around Sun Moon Lake allows easy access for anyone that can ride a bike. So cheap and so accessible, it's a must do.

It is a world-famous bikeway. You can ride your bike slowly to enjoy the beautiful lake view. Also if you want, you can take the challenge to go around the whole Sun Moon Lake, which is 30 kilometer long.

This is very close to the wharf and bus stop. There are many bike rental places nearby. There are many scenic spots to stop and take a photo
