Chiaming Lake Three-Day Hike

Trek to a lake formed by a meteorite!

Taichung New Activity

This lengthy but achievable hiking expedition, led by experienced mountain guides, takes you to the deep blue waters of teardrop-shaped Chiaming Lake

  • Climb 3310m meters up Xiangyang Mountain to Chiaming Lake, famed for its deep blue colour

  • Be led by experienced guides and passionate lovers of Taiwan's mountains

  • Uncover alpine beauty, emerald forests and the natural tranquility of the lake

  • Inclusive of two-nights accommodation plus two breakfasts and two dinners

What We Love:

It's hard to believe that water can be so blue until you set eyes on Chiaming Lake, and easy to see why it's often referred to as the ‘angel's teardrop' or ‘the sapphire in the mountains'. Formed by a meteor impact millions of years ago, visiting this high-altitude lake makes a fantastic hike, complemented by surrounding views of Xiangyang Mountain's rolling green hills. On this 3-day, 2-night excursion, mountaineering enthusiasts will be led across Taiwan's scenic hill country by experienced guides, staying in mountain cabins, and getting a rare taste for the beauty of the area and the fresh alpine air.
