Namsan (with Cable car)
Namsan (Mountain), which has a unique allure with each season, is currently displaying its brilliant splendor thanks to the falling autumn leaves.
Below are descriptions of the most scenic walks and information about nearby cable cars.
Namsan is in the middle of Seoul, therefore there are access points to it from all directions. Our focus will be on the two most popular routes: the "North Sunhwanno(Ringway)" and the "Cable car."
Walking on the Namsan North Sunhwanno(Ringway)
The only vehicles allowed in Namsan are those used by disabled people and business vehicles.
Instead, you can take bus #01 from the Chungmuro and Dongdae Entrance to the Namsan North Sunhwanno(Ringway) Entrance.
It's a popular spot in Seoul to take a stroll through the foliage during the autumn season. The atmosphere is lively right when you walk in.
Hearing the brook along the road makes me happy.
There are steps leading up directly from Jangchungdan Park. The distance is quite far, and the incline is quite steep.
The brilliant autumn colors of the foliage further intensify as you make your way through the hill in the middle of the North Sunhwanno (Ringway).
However, recent heavy rain makes it a little disappointing in comparison to previous years.
A big tree in front of the City Hall Namsan Office was a popular location for taking pictures
At the end of the route, you'll find the Waryongmyo. Check out this intriguing location
08:00 ~ 16:00 (every day)
This crossing of the North Sunhwanno(Ringway) without the use of a car is challenging, but it will provide you with a more pleasurable experience of Namsan.
Namsan Cable Car
If you're driving, there are two parking options nearby: a public lot, and a paid one.
Namsan Cable Car Parking: 1,500 won per 10 minutes
Shuttle service is available from Seoul Station and Myeongdong Station Exit 1.
As expected, there was a huge line on Saturday at 3 p.m.
The price of a round-trip ticket is 14,000. (adult). I only bought a one-way ticket so that I could walk back. Reasons will be provided below
The wait time was especially long because it was a sunny weekend.
The beautiful scenery made the wait worthwhile. The ride on the cable car will take about three minutes.
The square is crowded with people taking advantage of the season change.
Autumn foliage on Namsan (Mountain) is very striking when viewed from above. When making your way down the mountain, it's best to walk in the same direction as the cable cars.
At night, the vibrant colors of the changing leaves are even more striking.
The spectacular landscape has attracted visitors of many different nationalities.
Although it is more stunning than the North Sunhwanno(ringway) described above, you should be aware that some of it is inaccessible or expensive to visit.
If you keep following this path, you'll eventually reach Namsan Library. From here, you can take buses 402 or 405 to Gangnam, Myeongdong, or the Han River, or you can walk to Itaewon, Gyeongridan, or Haebangchon.
To celebrate the arrival of fall, I have introduced today several routes to Namsan Mountain. In any case, I wish you a satisfying experience, whatever that may be.
