This is a great park to escape from the city and do some hiking on some of the quieter trails. The forest is lovely, much to my surprise, being so close to the city. If you want you can go to the top and check out Namsan Tower.

Even a city lover would appreciate this. I mean, once you reach N Seoul Tower, you'll get to see how beautiful Seoul is. It's a nice rewarding walk. But I would only recommend walking if you haven't shopped all day in the surrounding neighborhoods lol.

I enjoyed wandering around. We found our own route up on small deserted footpaths which was very pleasant. The top is a bit hectic, but part of the experience. You can appreciate just how massive Seoul is stretching up the valleys on every side.

Beautiful in the Fall! It is also just as beautiful from a distance. The park is full of grandmas and grandpas in their full hiking gear walking on concrete.

It is a long walk from where you get off at the cable car, but the view of the city is well worth the price, which seemed reasonable compared to th CN Tower in Toronto.

Place is really crowded with tourist. Can barely take a decent photo. We took the cable car both ways (large standing type), and we were packed like canned sardines. On arrival, there is still need to climb up the steps. And do not bring you all the way up the N tower. We didn't bother asking if we can go... More

Namsan is a great place for a walk on a spring or fall day. If you visit in the Summer you will find it very humid. The view from the top is the best of Seoul
