Former President Chiang Kai-Shek liked the Sun Moon Lake very much. He often came to vacation, and he even built a tall tower, the Ci-En Pagoda, to commemorate his mother. Its former accommodation is now the elegant Lalu Hotel.
The Hanbi trail is the path that he and his beloved wife, Mrs. Sung, went almost every time they visited the area. Worth a visit is before sunrise. The steam of the lake painted the whole place blue.
The trail is almost 2 kilometers long and not steep. You can enjoy both the Sun Moon Lake as well as the forest with its diverse birds.
