- Northern Cross Highway 64km Lake
Northern Cross Highway 64Km Lake (中文版：北橫64k湖)is a beautiful man-made lake at the 64 kilometer marker of the Northern Cross Highway (Highway 7) in Yilan, Datong Township. The lake is at 1200 meters above sea level, so the water is quite cool, even in the summer. The water level changes throughout the year, but peaks at around 5-meters deep during the summer and fall.
The barrier supporting the lake makes a nice waterfall with a big swimming pool below it.
