Evening Hike

Panoramic View


View of Seoul from Eungbongsan

Last Wednesday I joined a hiking group that does weekly night hikes all around Seoul.  Last week we made the short hike to Eungbongsan (응봉산).  The “mountain” itself probably takes a grand total of ten minutes to get to the top. It’s really just a big hill with a park at the top.  But its position in the center of Seoul makes for an amazing nighttime view of Seoul.  We started our hike by meeting in Ichon and walked along the Han River for about 2 hours before getting to the base of the mountain.  From Oksu station (line 3) take the local bus two stops.

The pictures don’t do it justice, but you can get the idea of how beautiful Seoul looks at night from a bird’s eye view.
