  • Its a 30 to 40 minutes hike track. 1 km a bit steep but not too much and then 2 to 3 km its a normal walk.
  • A pleasant place. Easily accessible. I will come back there.
  • Good hike starting from Cheongjuland 청주랜드 up to fortress. 3.4 km one way. Hike ends at fortress top so you can get sone great views of the city.
  • Beautiful place. I go there quite often to get away from city life. Verm calm place with amazing views of the whol city. There are some markets and shops inside the fortress. A flower park and a small lake. There are huts/picnic spots where you can take your stuff and eat. On the sides is the wall of the fortress. One can hike/walk on the wall. It takes about 2 hours to complete a round trip of the wall. You can see the whole surrounding area from those walls as it is on a high place. Prominently you can see Cheongju airport, whole city and downtown area from the walls. The main gate has a lush green area in the front which serves as a playing area or picnic spot. A perfect getaway from a stressful like or for a family picnic.
  • I enjoy visiting this old fortress. We took our two children to see it this time. There are others, but this one is easily accessible from our location.
