I was disappointed in that all there is to see is some temple style fixtures attached to the wall and a 4.2 km walk around the circumference of the wall.You can take little walks through the middle but this time of year you only got to see bare trees.

We hiked up from the lower gate to the higher one, and it was an incredible experience. It only took us about 30 minutes to walk, but we spent at least that long taking pictures and enjoying the scenery. The main gate was absolutely stunning with the vibrant colors of the ceiling offset with the granite fortress wall, green foliage and the views of the city below.

beautiful fortress, with very lovely view, it was nice to wallk very early in the morning with the morning mist and fog, then the sun cam out. not for those with limited physical capabilities, but well worth walking the walls , at a slow pace.

There is only one bus which is bus number 862-2 that running every 25 minutes from Cheongju Gymnasium to Sangdang Sanseong. Sangdang Sanseong is the last stop and along the way the bus also brings us to other tourist attractions in Cheongju for example Cheongju National Museum. There are Korean restaurants operated by locals in the main gate near the bus stop. The hiking trail itself is not so steep, you can see the city of Cheongju from top of the hill. Even if you are not in the mood of hiking, you can just bring your mattress and tent and enjoy the view from the slope of the hill since they also provide camping area. There is also a small lake across the village. You will find that most of visitors are senior citizens who come usually with their hiking groups. Since there is only one bus and it is depart every 25 minutes, you should line up with others and be prepared to stand all the way to your destinations since its always full.

Sangdangsanseong Fortress was a popular spot for locals as a hiking spot and with a huge open field near the fortress entrance. While nowhere as scenic as the better known fortress walls in Suwon or Seoul, the fortress makes for a pleasant hike for a few kilometers in a peaceful surroundings. Several restaurants in a lakeside area awaits hikers who come back down after the hike.
