Fog-shrouded Sun Moon Lake  09:11, July 04, 2013  


As the only natural lake on the island of Taiwan, Sun Moon Lake is situated in Nantou County. It is divided by the tiny island of Lalu; the eastern part of the lake is round like the sun and the western side is shaped like a crescent moon. The beautiful alpine lake is revered as the heart of Taiwan, not only because of its central geographic location, but also for its role as home to five major hydropower plants which provide electricity to the rest of the island- just like the blood sent from a person's heart to their organs.
