Zhuzihu Rd., Beitou Dist., Taipei City 112, Taiwan (R.O.C.)
Located at the doorstep of downtown Taipei, Yangmingshan is known as the backyard of Taipei and provides an escape from the chaos of urban living. While visiting Yangmingshan National Park, you should never miss out on Zhuzihu (literally “bamboo lake”). Situated between Datunshan and Qixingshan, Zhuzihu was once a naturally formed barrier lake. As the lake water receded, it left behind fertile soil that became an agricultural settlement, where villagers started to plant groves of bamboo, hence the name.
During the Japanese Colonial Era, this valley was covered by dense patches of white calla lily flowers, which served as a cash crop at the time. As time went on, Yangmingshan became a major supplier of white calla lily flowers in Taiwan. Between March and May, Zhuzihu tantalizes with its beautiful array of calla lily flowers and blush cherry blossoms that emerge from pink buds, and the area is overflowing with tourists who flock to admire these blooming flowers when the weather is fair.
The blooming season for calla lily flowers is from March to May.
