Jialuohu 2, Yilan County – 加羅湖
September 20, 2010 by Stu
I recently took another trip to the remote mountain lake, Jialuohu 加羅湖 with Neil again. This was our second trip here and both times have been fantastic. Won’t write too much about the actual hike. Anyone looking for details can find them on my original post – Jialuohu
Here’s a few photos from the trip.
More photos from Neil here.

The giant redwood that marks the beginning of the climb to Jialuohu
Crawling under a giant tree on the way to another lake
Sliding, crawling and falling our way down a steep, dry river to another lake
- The second lake, a very beautiful place, especially when the mist rolls in and out
Fighting our way through the thick silver grass, long sleeves recommended!
The stars at night were incredible.

My first attempt at a panorama. Thanks to Neil for his post about this earlier.
