Namsan Park Reviews
Have a short fun to the top. We take cable car up and walk down. Hope to enjoy the autumn leave but sadly it not full bloom yet. Walking down can take 20 minute. more »
Nice and peaceful park. must try the cable car to oversee the views. beautiful trees and you could buy the 'love lock' as well worth a visit, esp autumn with the maple leaves more »
We walked through the park on the way to the N Seoul Tower. The paths were nice and clean and it was a nice walk through the trees. It was quite steep. We started from the Public Library entrance and it took about 30 minutes to climb up. There were quite a few rest spots and paths that seemed to lead to other areas of the park. Really nice walk up although it was a tad tiring.
Great place to go use cable car going up. Then explore the place going down.
