Inwangsan was a great walk - we headed up from Dongnimmun, past Seonbawi and then connected to the City Wall and followed it back down. Beautiful flowers by the wall on the way back down with panoramic views stretching from the Blue House, over Gyeongbokgung...More

If it is summer, come here as early as possible. It is a steep and sweaty hike up from the metro station. You will pass some shaman shrines, the guide advised against taking photos of the shrines to show respect. One idea is to come...More

Amazing mountain climbing along Seoul City Walls. Be careful for each step. - Starting from the west (near Muakjae Station or Sajik Park) is recommended for an easy ending(near Changeuimun Gate). - Obviously, this is an easy mountain comparing to others in Seoul. But, still...More

If you adore cities, you need to appreciate them from different angles. Seoul is blessed with an array of small mountains and towers; one has no excuse to see multiple on a trip. I would rate the views from Inwangsan above both Naksan Park and...More

Seoul is really hot on summer so we decided to go on hiking since Korean mountains are not that high, especially those in Seoul. It’s easy to access because it is located near the Gyeongbok Palace. The mountain itself is not that high, only 300...More

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

No I doubt it. The terrain is stable mostly, but the Police and military patrols on the mountain would see you as a threat to the President who`s house is close by, and the carry guns...
