陽明山竹子湖每當驚蟄之際,春還乍暖,就是海芋遍地綻放的時節;今年由於暖冬,海芋提早開花,陽明山海芋季預計將於 3 月 29 日至 4 月 28 日登場。

TAIPEI (The China Post) – Taiwan weather always gets warmer in spring, which also marks the beginning of the blooming season for calla lilies at the Bamboo Lake in Yangmingshan. Due to the warm winter this year, the 2019 Calla Lily Festival will run from March 29 to April 28.

 

竹子湖小油坑與海芋田連接宛若如世外桃源,雲霧飄渺間常有藍鵲及白鷺鷥,在白綠交錯的海芋田間來回穿梭。

Siaoyoukeng (小油坑), a post-volcanic geological park located on Mt. Qixing’s northwestern corner, leads you to the calla lily field where you can see Taiwan blue magpies and other egrets hovering in the misty clouds.

竹子湖名稱來自於兩百年前漢人初到此地開墾時,因見土地泥濘且遍地竹林,故稱此地為竹子湖。

The name of Bamboo Lake dates back from 200 years ago when the Han people first arrived in the region and started cultivating the wasteland covered by muddy bamboo forests.

逛累了可以在海芋大道上品嘗台灣當地小吃,有當地招牌土雞大餐、黑豬肉烤香腸和來自初鹿牧場的霜淇淋。

If you want a break after picking some calla lilies, you can taste some local Taiwanese snacks on the Jhuzihhu Shueiwei Calla Lily Trail (竹子湖海芋步道). There are plenty of local signature dishes such as grilled earth chicken, black pork sausage, and soft-serve ice cream from the Chulu Ranch.
