Plum Blossom Lake (Meihua Lake)梅花湖
Located in central Dongshan Township, Meihua Lake is near Luodong Railway Station and easy to access by transportation. There are famous tourist spots such as Jhongshan Tea Garden, Jhongshan Waterfall, Ren Shan Botanical Garden and Sanchin Temple, the headquarters of Taoism in Taiwan nearby.
Meihua Lake is a natural reservoir and faces the mountains on three sides. It used to be called Dapi Lake and Jinghu (mirror lake) in the past. Due to the resemblance of the shape of the Lake to the Japanese apricot with five petals, it was renamed Meihua (like the pronunciation in Chinese of the Japanese apricot) Lake. Meihua Lake not only has a rich lake ecology, but also provides farmland irrigation and water resource cultivation as a beautiful natural reservoir.
Meihua Lake covers a wide area of land. In the scenic area, there is a path going around the Lake with a total length of about 4 km, which is suitable for tourists to bike along and enjoy the gorgeous lake scenery. Looking at the radiant and enchanting scenery in the lake water and listening to the birds chirping enable people forget their troubles and enjoy travelling around in nature.
As there are diversified ecosystems in Meihua Lake, many plants and animals take this area as their habitat. You may find Formosan rock monkey, black-crowned night heron, and squirrel somewhere out there. Also, many food shops and bicycle rental stations are open around Meihua Lake, making it a popular place for parents and children.

Round the lake walkThere are several way to getting around the lake, bicycle, golf car, ferry and on foot. Enjoyed a nice morning in the lakeside cafe.
A Scenic and Relaxing PlaceThis lake is scenic. You can rent an electric bicycle for four to go round the lake and stop at various spot. The lake provides beautiful photo shots. It is a good place to relax and rest in the evening after a hectic day trip.
Nice scenery and fun with electric ridesOur driver brought us to Meihua Lake, he told us we would enjoy the electric car rides. We did, very much. Even our elderly mothers liked it and went around on their own while we fed the kids. The scenery was nice too, and the area was clean and well organised. There were also leg pedalled rides, but we saw that it was difficult for those groups to make it up the slopes, and they had to get off to push as we breezed past them. Don't miss this place if you are in Yilan.
Relaxing with a good viewFirst time being here and the view is fabulous and relaxing, with light breeze. You can rent either the electronic cycle or manual bicycle to go round the lake. But it is a little unaccessible without a transport but there are buses to go to the night market.

Great place for a relaxing timeA quiet and beautiful lake for a nice afternoon stroll. The lake is not huge but there are electric bikes available for rent at a reasonable price. Interesting experience to ride an electric motored bike around the Lake.
