Traditional Taiwanese Fishing Boat Spotted on Sun Moon Lake


Sun Moon Lake is Taiwan’s largest natural lake and as such, it has become quite popular for both foreign and local visitors alike. It is located in the middle of Taiwan, belongs to Shuei-She Village, Yuchih Township, Nantou County and home to one of Taiwan’s 11 aboriginal tribes, the Thao. Many fishing boats with four-handed fishing nets can be seen here and these nets are mainly used for catching Aruzay fish, referenced by the Chinese to the fact that its belly is a bit crooked. This is one of the fish varieties also widely known as “president fish” that breeds extensively in Sun Moon Lake. They have a very delicious flavor and a tender meat quality, which can be steamed or fried.

In the silhouetted distance on Sha Ba Lan Mountain is the Ci-en Pagoda that was built by Chiang Kai-Shek in 1971 in memory of his mother.
