SIWA Summer Scenic Hike – Seodaemun to Inwang Mountain

Wednesday, June 12, 2024 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Free

Get ready for a breathtaking journey. We will walk from Seodaemun Station to the peak of Inwangsan, which offers stunning 360-degree views of Seoul. We will then continue down to Changuimun Gate, where we can refill our water bottles and rest at the coffee shop. 

(*Participants who prefer to end the tour at Changuimun Gate can quickly return to the city by taxi or public bus.)

For those eager to continue the adventure, we will follow the Seoul City Wall up Bugaksan, then descend towards Gyeongbokgong. We can enjoy lunch together or head to Anguk Station, Line 5, for our journey home. 

The total length of the hike will be around 8km, and it will cover a mix of terrain, including roads, stairs, forest trails, and some rocks. Please wear comfortable shoes with good support and traction for safety.
