Inwangsan is another modest mountain but ideal for a solitary stride or for a leisurely promenade with good company. The granite peaks here are said to have motivated many past Korean artists. At 338 m, its inspirational views can be achieved in the brevity of a short afternoon hike. Inwangsan is a great place to see all of Seoul’s landmarks like N-Seoul Tower and the Han river via incredible 360 degree sweeping views.
To reach the mountain, take subway line 3 to Dongnimmun Station, exit 2.
