  • Information
    Namsan Cable Car runs from the base of Namsan Mountain up to N Seoul Tower, one of the most representative tourist attractions in Seoul, loved by tourists and residents alike.

    The new cable cars, which have been in operation since December 6, 2008, have an increased capacity of 48 people per car (up from 38). Unlike the older cars, the new cable cars have glass on all four sides, giving riders a wider view of the mountainside.

    Approximately 50,000 people ride Namsan Cable Car each month. Visitors who are looking for a more tranquil tour are advised to go in the morning. For both a daytime and nighttime view of Seoul and the tower, take the cable car up the mountain in the late afternoon and coming back down in the early evening.

    To get to the cable cars without having to walk too much, take the Namsan Oreumi, (Namsan outdoor elevator). The Namsan Oreumi is the first inclined outdoor elevator in Korea. It runs a distance of 140m from the entrance of Namsan 3rd Tunnel to the parking lot of Namsan Cable Car and only takes about two minutes, as opposed to the usual 20-min. walk. Maximum capacity is 20 people and operating hours are the same as Namsan Cable Car.
