  • Information
    Introduction
    Namhansanseong Provincial Park is a very popular mountain-climbing and driving destination located just outside Seoul. The mountain is famous for being very beautiful all throughout the year. In the spring, the acacia trees grow thick, in the summer the green forest covers the entire mountain, and in the fall, many people visit to climb the mountain covered in red autumn leaves.

    Namhansanseong Fortress, located on Namhansan Mountain, was originally built as a earthen fortress during the Gogureyo period, about 2,000 years ago, but after many renovations, Gwanghaegun of the Joseon Period built the fortress properly in 1621. If you climb to the highest peak, Iljangsan, you can see not only Seoul and the surrounding Gyeonggi-do, but also Incheon’s Nakjo area. In terms of fortress structure, because the surrounding mountain area is high and rough, and the fortress center is level and low, it is an easy place to defend, and to reside comfortably, two prime conditions for a mountain fortress.
