Dream Lake Hike

Photos, and KML file by Jose

Dream Lake is rather beautiful pool cradled by steep, wooden hills a few kilometers north of the town of Xizhi. On the weekends it’s popular with families and even couples taking their prewedding photos, but in morning it takes a magical deep green -blue hue in sunny weather.

Mount Sin is looming above the lake . It has an impressively rocky eastern ridge which is fun to climb. The return hike to the summit from the lake is only an hour or so, the view from the top is magnificent.(Taipei Escapes 1 by Richard Saunders).
