Plum Blossom Lake (Meihua Lake)梅花湖
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.

    Relax place

    A relax place for all age group people. The kids can feed the fish and duck there. Recommend to rent the electrical cycling bike to travel around the lake.

    A Scenic and Relaxing Place

    This 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 rides

    5 2018-12

    Our 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 view

    4 2018-10

    First 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.
