Spoilers alert! If you are not a regular hiker please leave this page else prepare yourself to be sorely disappointed. Jiaming Lake 嘉明湖 is a scenic lake located high up in the mountains at an altitude of 3520m above sea level. This is by far one of the biggest lake of its kind created by glacier movements within the mountains of Xiangyang National Forest Recreation Area.
Getting up to Jiaming lake is by no means an easy feat. Jiaming lake is right smacked in the middle of a plot of grasses atop the mountains.
For those who crave an adventure, set up tents at the campsite behind xiangyang police station where there are shower facilities and kitchen facilities for a peaceful and relaxing night to enjoy the starlights. Wake up gently to the first light of dawn in the wilderness as the sun gradually rises. Hike through the trails to the xiangyang cabins and appreciate the unique structure of the great xiangyang tree. Definitely not something to be missed for the wilder side of you.
