Geumjung Mt. fortress, Busan

(3.9/5 based on 95+ reviews on the web)
Visit Geumjung Mt. fortress for hiking or jogging opportunities amid a scenic natural setting. After severe destruction throughout the years, all that remains of this fortress are its stone walls and four gates. Still, with 17 km (10 mi) of fortifications, the area leaves an impression. Take the cable car from the south side of the mountain, or opt for a more vigorous hiking route via the northern trail, starting from a temple on the mountain's side. Once on the top, you can enjoy an open view of the picturesque surroundings. Wear comfortable shoes for easier walking on the rough terrain. Plan your Geumjung Mt. fortress visit and explore what else you can see and do in Busan using our Busan vacation builder.
