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.

  • We took the cable car and walked to South Gate. Then visited the 'Observatory' about the cable car station. Splendid old woods with reasonable trails having an almost 'Lord of the Rings' feel. Great v...  more »
  • Good hike from the cable car station towards Geumjung fortress and onwards to the temple. Recommended. 
  • I think value can be passed by plazas Onsen, ropeway climbing trails in Busan from the ropeway is nice and go it alone. Top hiking trails are maintained or where ever you go by time, adjustment is possible. Without time gates to go back, and over an hour? If you have time fortress wall goes along the course.
