Great "skyline views" from the cable car

Came here not for the park but to take the cable car to the top of Geumjeong Mountain where there's the "much-talked-about" Seokbulsa Temple with giant rock carvings of Buddha; as... read more

This is a lovely park both winter and summer. If you are a hiker it's a good hike up to the fortress with walking trail around the fortress wall. Or you can take the cable car to the top and walk as far as you want. The cable car is 8,000kw return and provides a great view, on a clear... More

Came here not for the park but to take the cable car to the top of Geumjeong Mountain where there's the "much-talked-about" Seokbulsa Temple with giant rock carvings of Buddha; as it turned out though, I actually came here for the great views of the pretty tall 20-to-40-storied buildings of the city which are "spread out all over the city"...

This is a old theme park, you can try their cable car. You can find lots of old games inside and nice food around the park.

It's well worth making your way over here from central Busan and walking through the shops and restaurants to the foot of this mountain park. The ride up in the gondola is great and gives you a lovely view over the city. The only negative point was that the directions at the top are not great, making it difficult to... More

ที่นี่วิวสวย บรรยากาศดี ธรรมชาติของแท้ ..จุดเด่นที่นี่คือ cable car .. a cable car coming up the mountain. Can see view city of busan spread out in the distance.

Spent a whole day here after reaching Mount Geumjeongsan via cable car we then hiked up the mountain via South Gate which was pretty hard work especially getting back down as some of the slopes are very slippery and steep.I wouldn't recommend the hike for young children but you can ride the cable car up and walk around the park...

This is a great park to take the kids. Besides the cable car, there is a museum, an amusement park, a grass oval to have a picnic on, and lots of clean public toilets. The pathway to the cable car is sealed and is very easy and comfortable to trek. Another bonus is the pathway is tree lined. Just take... More

A really nice steep walk up this hill - maekolli and padjeon available at the top, cooked by a little old lady and tasted amazing. Best padjeon I had in Busan. Lovely views from the top. Takes about 1-2 hours to get to the top. Can carry onto a nearby temple, or go to the oldest spa in Korea -... More

We read about this place and we were excited to ride the cable car. It wasn't crowded at all this place ! We (4 of us) were in the cable car with 2 other locals. The view was amazing ! There are many places once we reached the peak of the cable car ride but we did not explore all.... More

It was quite a walking distance from Oncheonjang MRT station. You are able to watch nice Busan view from the cable car. There are few temples around the park and please spend some time taking fresh air here.
