Zhuzihu 竹子湖

Anchor point


Zhuzihu is 670 meters above sea level, located between Datun Mountain, Qixing Mountain, and Xiaoguanyin Mountain. It was originally a "landslide dam" caused by lava eruption. Due to long-term erosion, a gap was created, and the lake water was gradually lost to form a fertile wetland.

Zhuzihu is a typical rural settlement within layers of mountains. Most of the time it is covered by clouds and fog. It is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Taipei City.

Zhuzihu Calla Lily Festival
Calla Lilies bloom from February to May each year. At present, the production volume of Calla Lilies in Zhuzihu accounts for more than 80% of the total in Taiwan, having become the most important economic crop today.

Zhuzihu Hydrangea Festival
At the end of May, the romantic white flower sea of Calla Lilies gradually comes to an end, followed by the purple-blue hydrangeas blooming during the holiday of Dragon Boat Festival.

There are about 7 to 8 varieties of hydrangeas planted in the Zhuzihu area. Diverse colors and rich layers are quite suitable for taking pictures.

    Wonderful for flowers' fans


    Popular for years, the Zhuzihu area is famous for its special landscape, flowers, restaurants and shops. Alocasia is especially beautiful and plenty here.

    Beautiful Calla Lilies


    Very scenic background. Multiple farms with rows of flowers. You will have to pay to enter the farm if you want to get up close with the flowers. Each is a tiny farm, so best to select which one u want to enter to take photos before paying the entry. We paid entering one of the farms under the impression that we could roam the entire stretch but were disappointed to find out that the small fence divided neighboring plot of land, which had far bigger flowers. There are smoking mountains in the background, makes good for backdrop in photos!

    Visit on 30th Mar, 1st day opening


    Plenty of lily to see but to get close you need to pay as all of them belongs to private owner. We didn't pay so just walk along outside the farm and take photo. As driver told us, during lily festival , they do have road restriction or sometime like that. Many people even just on the 1st day and its a weekday (Friday) can't image if you come on a weekend.

    When we asked the staff at the YMS visitor center for an afternoon hike recommendation, both the guides were really excited about Zhuzihu, so we gave it a try. From the visitor center, it was a 20min walk, always closely following the main road, thus not very enjoyable. We arrived at a parking place, from which it was another 10min walk through a small park with some water lillies surrounded by a fence. Finally we arrived at the actual place that had a bigger field of fenced water lillys, with people walking around inside (for extra fee). The most special thing there was the distant view onto Xiaoyoukeng. Summary: very popular among Chinese tourists - if you're into water lillies, perhaps worth a visit, otherwise definitely use the time more wisely (for a more beautiful hike in YMS, e.g. Qixingshan peak hike).

    Zhuzihu Village homes to the Calla Lillies


    From Beitou MRT take bus S.09 or 29 to the village. It snakes through the pass around 45 minutes to reach there. It's strongly recommended that to check the blooming season before visiting.
