This is a nice little hike in the heart of Seoul. Easy walk from the subway. Just Google "hiking in Seoul" for a link to the Korea tourism page that gives directions and details. I hiked up with my wife and 4 kids, the youngest of which was 4. They all made it up, not without some fussing but that... More

This is definitely a nice mountain walk. Though when coming in January, u won't expect much. I suggest to go definitely in Spring or Fall if u want to see the pretty leaves or greeneries. But coming to the mountain is definitely something different for me as I have visited Seoul for many many times. The walk is easy ...... More

Great walk, great view. There are different ways to take, but for sure you'll have a good time. You can go there with an empty bottle of water and fill it in there with free natural water. Have fun with the air pressure to clean your dusty trousers !

Achasan was a surprising great hike! I just went (late December 2014) for the first time expecting it to be overcrowded and extremely icy. However, my wife and I only saw about 20-30 people there throughout the 3 hours we hiked. So it was a very quiet hike which was really needed since living in such a busy city. Being... More

Achasan is a mountain famous for been a strategic location when the 3 kingdoms fought for Seoul. A Fortress Wall remains but don't expect to see much of it, It's almost 100% gone. To access the mountain, you can go from the Subway station "Achasan" or "Gwangnaru" on the purple line. from there walk around 20 minutes following the signs... More

Who knew the absolute best view of Seoul is from Achasan mountain? N Seoul Tower, 63 Building, Bukhansan peak? Nope, none of these are quite as good as the magnificient display that greets hikers on Achasan. If you visit during pleasant weather you will be rewarded with truly wonderful panoramic views of Seoul. N Seoul Tower is highlighted well as... More

Acha mountain or Achasan hits the sweet spot of being relatively easy, but still an interesting hike. You are rewarded with not only great views of the city, but also an interesting temple and some yummy Korean noms. The hike itself is very easy although there is rock scrambling. If you are bored one weekend I definitely suggest it!
