Menghuan Lake 夢幻湖

Anchor point
4.5 8 Reviews

Wednesday:open 24 hours




At about 870 meters in elevation, Menghuan Lake is located at the southeast foothills of Qixing Mountain. A rare aquatic fern, Taiwan quillwort, grows in the Lake. It is a relatively low-latitude region for quillwort in the world. Aquatic fern, such as Taiwan quillwort, is very hard to find; to preserve the national treasure, Menghuan Lake has been set as an ecological preserving zone. General tourists are not allowed in the Menghuan Lake area; they can view it from a sightseeing deck next to the Lake.
Compared to other places, Menghuan Lake has more rain in spring and summer. When the rainy season or heavy rain passes, the Lake will overflow. If it happens to encounter the mist on the mountain, the beautiful lake surface accompanied by the mist will make you feel that you are in a secret fantasy land in the fairy tale.

    Surreal state.


    From LengShuiKeng visitor center, I made my way towards LengShuiKeng hot springs. On the right of the hot spring there is a cobble stone path of about 200m leading to MengHuan lake carpark. From the moment you see the carpark, there is an obscured path leading up to the MengHuan lake. There is a washroom nearby and the piped water is cool and refreshing though I wouldn’t recommend drinking it. This path is uphill and some areas steeped. But a reasonably fit person shouldn’t have difficulty ascending it. At some point you will see the surrounding hills of LengShuiKeng with an information board indicating the location and names of each hill. From this point it’s less than a 100m to the entrance of MengHuan lake. Perhaps due to neglect from the park management, the lake has much overgrowth of aquatic plants. Was it part of the ecological layout no one knows. Thus the otherwise beautiful lake could not fully manifest its surreal surroundings. Nevertheless the lake is calm and still beautiful and with the ever changing weather it is indeed surreal. As I descended and reached MengHuan lake carpark, I was informed by the locals there’s a alighting stop for local bus 108 on the road behind the carpark. As I was my way to LengShuiKeng visitor center for the bus S15 to JianTan, so I couldn’t verified this fact. Perhaps someone could in future.

    選擇在飄雨且不到10度的時候造訪夢幻湖,不知道是不是個好的選擇 我們從冷水坑停車場停好車之後,開始往上走 (可以選擇直接從夢幻湖停車場上去,可以節省5分鐘路程) 這段路程雖然看似只有1KM左右,但是八成路程都是綿延不斷的階梯,對小孩的意志力比較是考驗 (體力倒不是問題) 很快的,在不到半小時內,就會到達夢幻湖邊 令人意外的,夢幻湖旁邊通通被圍欄圍起來 (不知道是保護水草還是保護人不要掉進去),少了更多親近夢幻湖的方式 到了夢幻湖觀景台,看到的夢幻湖範圍其實是很小,雲霧繚繞的感覺確實讓人覺得好像在仙境

    夢幻湖位在陽明山. 推薦的交通方式是從捷運劍潭站搭小15公車到冷水坑遊客服務中心再開始走上去, 車程約 20 分鐘, 所以不一定要等到有座位才上車. 從服務中心旁就有指標帶路, 緩爬約 0.8 公里可以抵達. 假日強烈不建議開車, 一來仰德大道有管制, 二來排停車場就是幾十分鐘空等. 夢幻湖景色很美, 可以跟七星山東峰加主峰排成半天左右的行程, 推薦給大家
