Bukhansan National Park
Bukhansan National Park is nestled in the northern part of Seoul. It was designated as the 15th national park of Korea in 1983. Baegundae Peak (840m above sea level) is the highest part of the national park and you can see as far as Hangang River from the top.
Gwanaksan Mountain is located in southern Seoul and it is designated as a city park in 1968. Most trails are of moderate difficulty and rocky valleys are the best spots for an introduction to rock climbing. At 630m in height, the mountain provides beautiful views of southern Seoul and Lotte World Tower.
