So, honestly, the Fortress is just a big 'ol wall with trees and weeds growing around it. It is not why you should go, but you should go. There is a cable car up if you need it, but I recommend hiking up. The hike...More

We got the cable car, having walked from Oncheonjang station to the 'ropeway' station. The signs aren't great but we were using satnav so it was fine. The cablecar itself looks like it's from the 60s (in a good way- vintage rather than unsafe) with...More

Took metro red line 1 to Beomeosa. At Exit 7 road level, immediately u-turn and take 1st right and walk up a small road to bus stop 90 (big letters which one can't miss) - it's the only bus which goes to Beomeosa Temple. Unfortunately...More

I saw on the map that it was close to the Temple so though I would kill two birds with one stone. The trail up to the North gate from the temple is well marked and even has ropes to keep you on the track....More

Great fortress. West, East, South gate are easy to access. North gate is to approach from other gate or Bomosa. Anyway each gate is worth visiting.

We travelled up the cable car, expecting to be at the top, but in fact there was a long walk from where the cable car stopped. It was light bushland with a reasonably good series of tracks and plenty of signage. An enjoyable outing with...More

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 views. Two ways in which the experience could be improved 1)...More

We had a great day here, the scenery and nature is beautiful. However: make sure to follow the walls, as the area in the middle of the fortress is rather boring. Viewpoint north to the fortress is worth a stop if you have the time!
