Seoul Sights

Bukhansan Mountain and National Park

Updated 12/31/1969

Fodor's Review

Seoul offers any number of mountains and trails for hiking, but Bukhansan is both the tallest and most beautiful. Bukhansan Mountain and the surrounding 30 square mile Bukhansan National Park is an ecological island in the city. In addition to fresh air, views of the city, and over 1,300 species of plants and animals, Bukhansan is home to numerous historical and cultural sites. Of note are the Bukhansanseong Fortress and over 100 temples scattered throughout the area.

Hikers looking for solitude, however, are in for a disappointment. As Bukhansan is only a short subway ride from central Seoul, it is full of other hikers year-round and is listed in Guinness Book of World Records as the "Most Visited National Park per Unit Area."
