Introduction
At 629 meters in height, Gwanaksan Mountain is the symbol and pride of Gwanak-gu district in Seoul. Most of the cultural heritages of the district originate from Gwanaksan Mountain. Since it was designated as a city natural park in 1968, it has continued to serve as a favorite place for relaxation and excursion for Seoul citizens. The various rocky peaks and the deep valleys give the mountain its rugged feel. The mountain's size and close proximity to Seoul make it easy for Seoul residents to visit it in a single day.

In the spring, cherry blossoms are in full bloom near the entrance to the mountain, and a Rhododendron Festival is held there when the rhododendrons are in full bloom. At the mountain's summit are Wongaksa Temple and Yeonjuam Hermitage, which were built by Taejo Yi Seong-gye (the founder of the Joseon Dynasty) to ward off misfortune when he decided to move the capital to Seoul. There are also other temples and hermitages, and a ground radar observation post. Yeonjudae Hermitage, located top of the cliff, is where all the hiking trails of Mount Gwanaksan meet.
