Arriving in Dongnimun, we, my best friend and I found stairs at the left side of the entry. Following the stairs, a small shrine and temple, as well as big stones to pray to appeared. We followed the pathway and with some luck we found ourselves to be at the Namsan wall. We then followed the way all the way... More

Walked up here today. Great view up by the wall. Not sure if I took the best track. Got off metro at Muakjae. Take exit 1 or 2. Narrow street off to the right goes past apartment blocks and the water authority building then on to a track. Came down a different way about 700m further along the main road.... More

350m high, 4km long, well maintained and safe hiking course to see President House, Old Palaces and core of Seoul. Walk along with castle and see all around of Seoul. It is beautiful Seoul. Near this mountain, many famous testaurants. Walking with children is no problem. If you like temple, visit Temple in the Rock, very small but pesceful.

If you have a couple of hours to spare and want to get away from the business of the big city the inwangsan hiking is the answer. It's more a stroll than a hike, but it's extremely pleasant. Hundreds of steps chiselled out from the rocks to make it very approachable to all. The climb is gentle zigzagging through beautiful... More

A very beautiful place! I (16 y/o) did the trip with my father and a friend of his with his nephew. A great place to do mountain climbing, enjoy nature and talk. We started at the bottom and went up, meeting many people relaxing at different stages of the mountain. From the top there is a beautiful view to the... More

Actually, there are two different hills which are quite different, the western side "Inwangsan" is not so strictly contolled, althought there are some polices visible, I think you can access that any day you wish, since there are no gates etc. The western side Bugaksan is military area with strict control and cameras every 100 meter. The Inwangsan side is... More

The day I planned to climb Bukhansan Mountain, it was closed to public so I decided to climb Inwangsan instead, which was of no regrets. The climb up was a bit tricky as there were many routes up. Please remember to wear hiking shoes and proper hiking clothes as the climb would be a bit challenging. Once you reach the... More

Put your sneakers on and get ready for hiking if you put Inwangsan Mountain on your list. You need to walk a quite steep path, and climb up. Before you climb to the peak, you'll pass Seonbawi Rock and the Inwangsan temple. To find the way is a bit tricky. I wasn't sure whether I was on the right track... More
