Proper Sun Moon Lake Ride
After seeing the 921 Earthquake epicenter, we headed back towards Puli (埔里) town. First we took a small detour to the road under the big former slide slope.
Straight road through the former big sliding slopes.
Crossing National Highway #6 from below. This Highway connected south TaiChung directly to Puli.
Soon we entered the main Puli basin area.
Some sort of chocolate shop.
Great mountains around Puli.
Unlike most visitors who just rushed towards Sun Moon Lake, our Proper Sun Moon Lake Ride went to the east side and visited less known aboriginal villages.
Nice balls and dick.
Sun Moon Lake & Towards Highway #16
Our Proper Sun Moon Lake Ride eventually arrived Sun Moon Lake from here. To withstand a bit the normal tourist traffic for a few kms, we headed on a country route #63 from Ita Thao to visit proper aboriginal villages.
Here we connected to Sun Moon Lake.

Highway #16 & Back
Our Proper Sun Moon Lake Ride’s last stop was along Highway #16 and back to Shueli. We first took a detour to visit a nearby aboriginal village DiLi (地利).
Highway #16 ended at the upstream of ZhuoShui River (濁水溪)
Just like Greek mythology, Taiwan’s aboriginal belief also had a bird bringing fire to people.
Along Highway #16 we again took a detour for less traffic.
Crossing ZhuoShui River.
Below was the simple steep plate bridge for sand trucks.
Proper Sun Moon Lake Ride was a decently challenging ride with lots of true Puli’s beauty. Just like AliShan back road ride, this route is for adventurers who want to enjoy Puli’s authentic beauty without competing with big buses and tourists. As long as you are comfortable handling dogs Proper Sun Moon Lake Ride was highly recommended.
