Sun Moon Lake Ropeway in Taiwan

A new cable car line has launched near one of Taiwan’s most popular leisure destinations, Sun Moon Lake, to offer grand views over the island’s largest natural lake and surrounding mountain scenery. The 1.8 kilometre-long ‘Sun Moon Lake Ropeway’ is elevated 150 metres over the surface of Sun Moon Lake. It will connect the Sun Moon Lake Activity Center, which is home to over 50 species of rare butterflies, with the Aboriginal Culture Village – a popular theme park that celebrates the cultures of local indigenous people. Sun Moon Lake is a popular tourist attraction where visitors can tour a number of fascinating temples and picturesque pavilions. The lake is also ideally suited for a variety of outdoor activities including boating, canoeing, hiking and cycling. Its name is derived from its unusual shape, which is similar to the Chinese characters for sun and moon.
