This is a well kept up trail that offers beautiful views of Northern Seoul. It offers not only pleasing asthetics, but is also a great way to understand Seoul's history and culture.

You get nice views of the city. There are a few shrines along the path and a big rock in the shape of a praying Buddha. To the east, across the city wall, is the presidential Blue House. The area on the east side of the city wall is closed on Mondays and you have to be on the east... More

This is U Baek Ho (white tiger). Many places are not allowed to take a picture.You'd better leave your heavy camera. Just enjoy beautiful scenes.

We started at Dongnimmun station. Go out exit two and head straight to the first street. At first street take a left and follow it up through the buildings/apartment complex to the trail head. You will be going uphill. As you get closer it will get steeper and there will be stairs. First stop is the shamanist shrine and Seonbawi... More

Great views of Seoul alongside dozens of temples and shrines where shamanists perform their exorcism. You'll get the daily exercise and your spiritual fix at the same time. You start and end at Donninmum station, but you can choose to ascend and descend the mountain on different paths.

A not overly demanding hike that will give you stunning views over Seoul, nature and interesting sights. Beautiful mountain with well maintained trails right in the heart of Seoul. Get off the metro and within minutes you are in pine woods. We started the walk from Dongnimmun station (line 3 - we took exit 1 and followed the signs to... More

This uphill walk is steep but really rewarding and a great way to get away from the busy city of Seoul - if only for a few hours. You will see Buddhist temples, a shamanist shrine, and enjoy a great view. Take subway Line 3 to Dongnimmun station - leave by Exit 2 and turn down the first winding alley... More

It was a lovely early morning hike with no disturbances and good views of Seoul. There isn't that much to explore but the fact that it's quiet, very easy to get to from the subway, and gives you a fair workout all put it higher in my esteem.

In Korea, people love & enjoy their hikes. There are many walking trails around Seoul. This is one of them.. How to get there: I was starting from Itaewon subway station (Line 6) to Yaksu station and changed to Line 3 to Dongnimmun station. Came out at exit 2, following signs to Inwangsa temple. Cost of subway (single trip) for... More

If you are dying to get some hiking on your vacation in Seoul, a hike up Mt Inwangsan provides you just that. The route is actually a section of the Fortress Walk. From the top of Mt Inwangsan you can see Gyeongbokgung palace, etc below. You can start by getting off at Gyeongbokgung Station and exit at Exit 1. Walk... More
