7.2 Sun Moon Lake Tour 日月潭遊艇遊湖 Part 1 + 日月潭缆车 Sun Moon Lake Cable Car

Next morning, we reach the Shueishe Wharf (水社码头) at around 9am.

Today we plan to visit Formosan Aboriginal Culture Village (九族文化村)。

How go to Formosan Aboriginal Culture Village from Sun Moon Lake?
1. By Bus
2. By Sun Moon Lake Cable Car

Our homestay is at Shueishe Wharf(水社码头).
The Sun Moon Lake Cable Car is near Yidashao Wrarf(伊达邵码头).
So we decided to take the boat from Shueishe Wharf(水社码头)to Yidashao Wrarf(伊达邵码头), where we can go to the Sun Moon Lake cable car station.

The lake tour is divided into 3 major stops:
1. Shueishe Wharf(水社码头) –〉Yidashao Wrarf(伊达邵码头)
2. Yidashao Wrarf(伊达邵码头)-〉Syuanguang Wrarf (玄奘寺码头)
3. Syuanguang Wrarf(玄奘寺码头) –〉Shueishe Wharf(水社码头)
At the back of the ticket has the time of each location on when the boat is leaving.

The earlist boat from Shueishe Wharf(水社码头) is 9.20am, and the latest boat from Syuanguang Wrarf(玄奘寺码头) back is 5pm.

Every boat company will have it's own time.

We took the earlist boat ride which is 9.20am. That day is weekdays and we are only the 2 passenger on the boat. Seems like we are renting the whole boat. Hehehe....

Reach Yidashao Wharf (伊达邵码头)。

But the Sun Moon Lake Cable Station look so far, we need to walk 20-30minute.

Here we reach the cable car station, there is a lot crowd on the station, especially more then hundred kids runing around.

We quickly move to buy our tickets.
There is a promotion purple lavender《紫戀薰衣草 》 on that time, our ticket to the culture village + cable car is NT$550 (normal price NT$700)
Our cable car ticket number was over thousand at 10.15am.

The cable car starts operating at 10.30am. I took the culture village map and study on it. It definately is a huge park and there is alot things to visit and play.

After waiting for half hour, it's own turn on the cable cars. It is not my first time on cable cars as there are cable car's at Genting, Malaysia. The Sun Moon Lake cable cars are in these 3 different colors: blue, red and yellow.

If you come to Sun Moon Lake, this cable car trip is a must ride. From the cable cars, you can see the amazing beautiful lake view from the cable cars.
