Hiking on Jiaming Meteor Lake

Jiaming Meteor Lake 嘉明湖  3Days2Nights

It is the 2nd highest lake in Taiwan. The lake is ellipse-shaped and the water color is deep ruby blue. There is no river flows into this lake, but it never dries out in whole year. 

Because it is close to sky and shape like a drop, many Taiwanese people call it “angle’s tear”. Recently it becomes a famous scenery in deep mountain side.
