A fortress has stood on this mountain for over 1,000 years. The original construction of a fortress in this location began during the Three Kingdoms. What we see now is a Joseon fortress built from or on top of a previous fortress. During the Joseon dynasty the fortress went through nine stages of repairs between (1716) and (1836).
For anyone who enjoys hiking this is a great location. To walk the entire fortress it takes 2-3 hrs. Keep an eye out for secret gates, which are often well hidden and easily missed. This particular mountain fortress is representative of early Joseon fortress design. For those interested in Korea's history, visiting some of Korea's many fortresses is a great start. I would highly recommend Namhansanseong Fortress, Hwaseong Fortress, and Sandangsanseong Fortress.
