Bugaksan - Review
Bugaksan or the Seoul Fortress Wall is one of the iconic tourist destinations in Seoul. This place is in actuality a wall built along the face of the Bugaksan Mountain.
Korean folklore has a lot of stories that are related to this place and it hence holds a special place in the lives of the Korean locals. Sightseeing is basically the only activity that can be carried out in this location. The mountainous terrain and centuries old architecture can provide a breathtaking escape from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Bugaksan, Seoul Reviews
A good exercise to trek up the hill and then be rewarded with a very nice view of Seoul from the top. Try going up from one place and coming down from another route. You will be pleasantly surprised by the things you see along the way.
This place is perfect for a wonderful city panorama. The path is well marked and made easier by ropes and stairs build in rock. The view from the top is amazing. You can also walk along the city wall. Enjoy finding your favourite spots: Gyeongbokgung, Namsan Tower, Blue House and many others :-).
excellent place!!! it was my first experience about hiking, hiking is good for health, don't try if you are not physically fit for it!
A nice walk/hike along the fortress wall. Splendid views of the city too!
Here is one of the best places for light tracking in Seoul, South Korea. You can see beautiful old castles which surround city following small mountain ridge which has thick forest. In addition, you can also enjoy the panoramic view of seoul downtown on the hill.
