Geumjung Mt. fortress, Busan
(3.9/5 based on 90+ 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.

  • On the bus from a field station, left off in the vicinity of the East Gate. Okay if you appeal that Hangul is a neccessity, driver you want to map. It is possible to go from Gate City shoes and boots. There was a clean toilet. If, however, from the East Gate gate to trekking shoes at least ditch the shoes back firm is required. Let's hold as well as water. From gate walking to beomeosa Temple via the North Gate two hours took a little while.

  • We thought this next to the temple Beomeosa. But even Koreans didn't really possessed the information. Eventually we Koreans from the temple 20 minutes carried, dropped off at the bus stop. You should take the bus 203. We on it came to the southern entrance, and saw the Fort only this entry. On there and people live, their gardens, we didn't understand where to go. And returned back to the bus stop. But the view is beautiful, and the place is quiet, serene. National Park.
