YangMingShan ZhuZiHu (台北阳明山竹子湖), a refreshing and peaceful rural area with altitude of approximately 670 meters that located between Mountain DaTun (大屯山), Mountain QiXing (七星山) and Mountain XiaoGuanYin (小觀音山). It will be full of beautiful Calla Lily (海芋) during blossom season from Feb to May, while Mar and Apr are the best months for visiting.
ZhuZiHu was a barrier lake formed after volcanic eruptions, left behind a fertile land after lake water receded. With also the exceptional climatic and rich spring water, all these create a great environment for agricultural and the place eventually became a rural settlement. ZhuZiHu was used to be full of bamboo, wind blowing through the whole bamboo forest created a scenery looked like waves of a huge bamboo lake, and that came the name ZhuZiHu (Bamboo Lake).
We were so glad that have visited ZhuZiHu in end of Apr, able to witness the beauty of Calla Lily at its’ best moment of blossom season.
