Amazing way to get away from the city even though you are still in Seoul. Thus, it was originally built to protect the city, so it's very cultural! A must go place if you're in Seoul!

There are many trails to go to the top of the mountain. There are many stairs at the beginning of the climb, but as you progress, the journey will become harder as the trail can be quite steep. Nice workout!! I sweated all over although...More

This is a hike that involves climbing a lot of steps and stairs up to the top. There is a small section, closer to the top, that is steeper and requires a bit more care, but all in all, this hike can be done in...More

This was fun! You can get great views and good exercise without going to the highest summit. We went as high as we would then found lots of other paths to explore. There are many ways to access this mountain- from steps to paved paths....More

A walk up the mountain, took us 3-4 hours, including rest stops. The incline, which is steep in places, has crude steps that has been cut out of the granite rocks. Nearer the top, a rope handrail is in place to assist at the steep...More

Inwangsan Mountain is a fairly accessible hike which gives you amazing views of the city. There's no cost in entering the hiking trails, and is fairly safe to climb solo. My friend and I took an early morning ride (around 5am) to Gyeongbokgung and figured...More

No car required: this steep but scenic hike with views over the whole city is very close to Line 3's Dongnimun station. Finding the trailhead is a little tricky. Look for staircases due east of the station, walking between the two station exits on the...More
