Welcome to Liyu Lake

Though the entire East Rift Valley was most likely once a giant lake, it drained long ago, leaving 2km long Liyu Lake (鯉魚潭; Lǐyú Tán) as the largest natural body of fresh water on the east coast. Shaped somewhat like a carp (liyu means 'carp' in Chinese), Liyu is tucked into the green foothills of the Central Mountain Range about 19km southwest of Hualien
