The Sun Moon Lake is Taiwan's largest natural lake. It is located in a mountainous area in Nantau County at an elevation of 762m. The eastern part of the Sun Moon Lake is shaped like a round sun while the western part is like a crescent moon. Thus it was named “Sun Moon Lake”. In the middle of the lake is an island, named Lalu.
