Like most large cities, cable car attractions are expensive and if you enjoy taking in the cityscape without wasting time and energy, the Namsan Cable Car is recommended. Otherwise, you may hike or take an alternative but longer route to get to the top.

It’s the fastest way to N seoul tower. located at the bottom of the hill. Cable car can accommodate about 50 pax per trip. Pay round trip ticket if you opt to use it going back down. Nice view to the city while on transit.
