說明 Introduction

Seven Stars Lake is in fact not a lake anymore but a crescent-shaped bay north of Hualien. The Seven Star Lake (Qixingtan七星潭) was once the name of a series of small lakes, however, Taiwan’s Japanese rulers filled in the lakes as part of a modernization drive in 1936 and the local people retreated to the coastal area; their descendants now still call Qixingtan.
Embraced by mountains on both sides, Seven Stars Lake features a beautiful pebble shore. The view of the ocean and the spectacular mountains  give the impression of being in a beautiful painting. As one of the most popular tourist routes with beautiful ocean views, the well-planned cycling path stretches about 13 kilometers to the South Coastal Park and North Coastal Park downtown.

Less than twenty kilometers from Hualien City, Liyu Lake (鯉魚潭) is the largest lake in eastern Taiwan.
A charming lake hidden up in the mountains of East Rift Valley of Hualien County, Liyu Lake is a great place for cycling and enjoying the scenery.
The name of lake origins from the Liyu Mountain beside the lake. The neighboring Liyu Mountain has many forest paths and is open to hiking and exploration.
Every year around April in the evening, thousands of fireflies are drawn to the area, and their sparkling lights can be seen reflecting across the surface of the lake meanwhile in the summer the lake is home to family of inflatable Muscovy ducks.
A bicycle path surrounds the lake and it is 5KM in length Liyu Lake is sized at 1.04 SQ KM and part of the Chihnan National Forest Recreation Area.

Danongdafu Forest Park covers a vast area, about 1,250 hectares, boasting mesmerizing sceneries and recreation features. It is also the venue that has been planned for Hualien Hot Air Balloon Festival.
Nestled between the Coastal and Central Mountain Ranges, the view here is breathtaking; it is home to luxuriant ecology with hundreds of butterflies and precious bird species.
The park features various recreation facilities such as bicycle trail.
