TAIPEI (Taiwan News) -- A photo of Jiaming Lake (嘉明湖), commonly referred to as "Angel's Tear," or what the Bunun Tribe call the "Moon's Mirror," was captured on Sunday.

Jiaming Lake, located in Haiduan Township (海端鄉), Taitung County, is the second highest lake in Taiwan. It is a renowned alpine lake, which is traditionally referred as "Angel's Tear" due to the deep sapphire color of the lake.

Jiaming Lake National Trail is an important habitat for wild animals including Formosan sambar deer and Formosan black bear. The trail runs through both ecological protection areas and restricted mountain areas.

For information regarding the trail, please visit the trail website or the Taiwan Forest Recreation website. For information regarding cabin permits and entry permits, please call the TFDO at 089-324121, ext. 705, 713, or 715 during office hours.
