Mingchi is located 17 kilometers up the road from the Qilan Nursery, at the highest point of the Northern Cross-Island Highway. The frequently fog-shrouded lake of the name- Mingchi means bright lake-is nestled beautifully amidst the mountains and is surrounded by planted cryptomeria and old-growth cypress. A footpath around the lake, and lookout pavilions, make it easy for visitors to enjoy the scenery. Mingchi Hostel offers meals and accommodation in 32 hotel rooms and 36 cabins.
