Inside Namhansanseong Fortress
Kwangju City – Global Digest group members visited Namhansanseong Fortress in Kwangju Kyeonggi-do, South Korea. Namhansanseong Fortress is a popular and very beautiful park to visit hence, many people come here because of its center and low level, easily reach and climb and not like other mountains which rough and high and difficult to climb to the top, down the road there is a great overlook where you can see a outlook view of the valley below.
The group of four people departed from Seoul City at around 12:00 pm and took the subway train until we reached line 8, Namsanseong station and rode a taxi to our destination, Despite of unfriendly driver, we had experienced wrong direction and we were able to start from other mountain which was our way to find Namhansanseong Fortress after almost 2-hours of high climbing. Finally, at about 3:00 in the afternoon, we have reached the west gate entrance of the Fortress and began to start after a little meal.

Although, tired and inexperienced to journey on this kind of mountain climbing and visit, we were able to walk and see the west gate of the fortress and started to climb the 3.7 kilometers from west gate until reaching the top of the very beautiful and ancient fortress. One of a kind scene you would see the overlook from the top of the fortress, we were able to take many pictures and seen the whole Kyeonggi-do area, not only the seoul region but also the Incheon Nakjo zone.
We were able to see many native Koreans, adults and young along with their families and few foreigners have seen on that monday holiday as part of the Chuseok Day to Korean people or called ”Thanks Giving Day”. Beautiful trees can be seen in the area like acacia trees which grow thick during spring, but it will dry after autumn because of its very cold winter season. Many people visit to climb the mountains because it of its very beautiful place to relax, easy to climb and so good to exercise as well. Moreover, there are some people who were able to relax and sleep for a while inside the mountain park.

Namhansanseong Fortress is a wonderful Provincial Park and a great place to visit for those who love mountan climbing because of its easy accessibility to all, most especially to adults and children, tourists and those people who want to have a good relaxation. Likewise, there are lots of restaurants behind-the- scenes, near the village and very comfortable steps to walk to the top of the awesome fortress.
Sooner or later, we have found out that going to a very beautiful Namhansanseong fortress is so easy to visit by taking Government bus no. 9 from the subway station up to the the north gate of the Namhansanseong fortress without taking a taxi anew. Surely, anyone who visited the beautiful historical park will come again and will bring friends to experience and see the popular and historical Namhansanseong Fortress.
The Global Digest members left the place by 6:30 in the evening taking Bus no. 9 and comfortably went back to Subway line 8 after taking a dinner from a korean restaurant.
