#3 of 63 in Parks in Seoul
Enjoy some fresh air at the mountaintop Namsan Park, one of the city's most popular areas for strolling, picnicking, and relaxing. Make your way up to the top of the 262 m (860 ft) peak via cable car to take in sweeping views over the capital's urban sprawl. Go for a leisurely wander around the network of walking paths crisscrossing the park and meandering through the area's wooded landscape. You'll find sport facilities for badminton, tennis, swimming, baseball, and more around the park, as well as a botanical garden, library, and cultural center. Put Namsan Park on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Seoul trip planning site .

  • Walking up to tower was truly an experience. Cable car is available, but with walking you get to stop and enjoy the beautiful sunset and different angles of Seoul. This place is a must and definitely go when it’s near the sunset time.
  • Easy walk up. There are many people along the way so it's not dangerous even at night. The night view of the city on the way up is simply spectacular!
