Shimen Reservoir, Daxi

4.0
#1 of 38 in Parks in Taoyuan
Water Body · Nature / Park
Walk over the great dam at Shimen Reservoir for panoramic views of the surrounding mountains. Head to the nearby park for cycling, walking, and picnics, or grab a bite at the Hakka restaurant offering highland cuisine. Bird-watchers should look out for the endemic Taiwan whistling thrush, Japanese white-eyes, light-vented bulbuls, and many other species (a museum in the vicinity exhibits descriptions and sightings of local birds). Dress warmly: the winds at this altitude can be harsh. Plan to visit Shimen Reservoir and other customer-reviewed, writer-recommended Daxi attractions using our Daxi road trip planning website.
