Wang Long Pi望龍埤
Wang Long Pi, also called Ruan Pi, sits behind Hushan Elementary School in Zhenshan Village, Yuanshan Township, Yilan County. Centuries ago, flash floods created the lake at the foothills by the Da Jiaoxi River. Because it was located in the mountains, Wang Long Pi became a part of the local residents’ lives. The elders picked its name from an ancient poem, hoping that it would always be filled by the rain.
Gorgeous scenery surrounds Wang Long Pi, which is flanked by mountains on three sides. A bridge of nine turns and an arched bridge, built in the Chinese style, connect two sides of the Lake together. The beauty of the landscape makes Wang Long Pi a relaxing vacation destination in Yuanshan Township.
The beautiful Lake and mountains were chosen as a filming location for the popular TV drama Autumn’s Concerto. The lakeside café was even renamed as Huatien Village, the fictional village in the show, attracting more tourists to come to admire the view.
Take a scenic walk around the Lake and bask in nature, or follow the Feilong trail to the viewing platforms (about 1 km in distance) and see the ever-changing reflections across the water’s surface, to enjoy the Lake from a different perspective.

Feeding fishNot many animals except the fishes and ducks. Was recommended by our driver from Free Individual Travel Taiwan because there's a child in our group. Good place for young children to experience nature and feeding the Koi fish. Nice scenery.
Scenic and Quiet Part of YilanWe did not plan to visit this lake even though we saw that there was a bus number 755 from Yilan that terminates at this spot. But our local taxi guide brought us here while on our way to Artemis for lunch. She claimed that it is a place popular with locals for their weekend day out. While the lake may not look as big as Longtan lake, it was nevertheless a nice quiet and scenic spot to hangout for a while. You could take a short walk on the lake across the various pavilions, looking out at the mountains and the clear sky in the horizon. Or I understand you could take a walk along the perimeter of the lake along the various trails. The lake waters look the colour of jade green, so it's a nice contrast to the other lake waters we've visited. Would say it is comparable to the other scenic lakes in Yilan (e.g. Longtan, Meihua), although it is best to come here only if you have transport such as taxi, or car or motorbike.
Good for a relaxing walkThe lake has its history to discover but if you only want a peace of mind, don't bother and just enjoy the leisure walk around the lake and the famous red bridge. It is not a convenient spot to get to as many other places in Yilan but you'll be fine if you hure taxi or drive here. Don't miss the several stalls selling snacks and local produces.
"Relax your mind, breath some good Air"Another scenic area, needs around 1.30_2.00 hours for a slow walk, few pictures, admire the surrounding lake and mountains...
a nice leisure spot.. time seems walking slow here..nice spot to visit.. cycling or walking along the river.. felt the pressure just very behind the back.. green lake with red bridge and white mountain background (because of flower).. it's a peaceful leisure area..
