Sister Lake_Title Picture
The Alishan Sisters’ Ponds are two different sized high mountain ponds connecting with each other. They said there were a couple of sisters falling in love with the same man. They didn’t want to hurt their sisterhood, so they jumped into the ponds respectively to kill themselves. Because of the sad and beautiful story, the Sisters’ Ponds becomes really famous. People put a root head of a big cypress tree on the Elder Sister’s Pond to be the base and built two Missing Pavilions on it to connect the shore with wooden bridges. They also built a 180-meter long walk surrounding the ponds.

The Elder Sister’s Pond is a bit rectangular, about 360 square feet in size. The Younger Sister’s Pond is more round, about 120 square feet in size. Both ponds are decades old. The pond water is very clean and peaceful without waves, like a mirror, so it is an important landscape of the Alishan Forest Scenic Spot. Especially when the pond is full of water, visitors tend to linger here to indulge in the quiet peace. With fish jumping out of the green pond, people can’t help thinking of the old times. However, Taiwan weather has been so dry these years that the Sisters’ Ponds finally dried out in 2002. The ponds can’t be water resources any more. When you go visit there, you can focus more on the changes of the nearby ecological areas. If it is a time when there is lots of water in the pond, you will understand how valuable the beautiful scene is.
