Menghuan Pond on top of Yangmingshan belongs to Lengshuikeng Recreation Area. Lengshuikeng possesses two entrances to hiking trails, and both can be used to reach Menghuan Pond. The total length of Lengshui Trail is 2.5 kilometers, and it'll take around an hour and half to walk it. Aside from setting out from the entrance of Lengshuikeng's hiking trails, you can drive directly to Menghuan Pond's parking lot and start from there. Menghuan Pond's parking lot is located about a kilometer away from the pond. While the first half of the trail is flat, the second half becomes steeper, however it isn't too difficult to navigate. The scenery along the way is magnificent, and you can overlook Yangmingshan's beautiful landscape from above. All four seasons possess different sights and features to be admired. Once you arrive at Menghuan Pond, you'll be directly connected to the pond's walkway. You may follow the path around the pond and admire its scenery. Depending on what time of the day you visit, as well as the available light and shadows, Menghuan Pond will take on a different appearance. It's a beautiful and stunning sight, no matter what. The pond has an abundance of natural resources, and is currently classified as a protected area. Therefore, a fence is erected along the shores of the pond and entrance is forbidden. This pond is also home to a very unique Taiwanese aquatic plant: the isoetes taiwanensis. Many signs and explanations are located by the trail so that visitors can better understand the local ecology.
