Climbing Achasan mountain (아차산) is something that every traveler in Seoul should do at least once. As a local Seoul-ite (a word I just made up), I've climbed it countless times. Why? It offers one of the most sweeping and beautiful views of Seoul and its most prominent landmarks! There are also three notable attractions: the Acha-san botanical gardens, Kingorang physical activity park, and the pine tree forest. If you'd like we can visit these places during our hike! Achasan is located in the eastern part of Seoul and is fairly easy to climb. Anyone can enjoy climbing the mountain safely. Because the subway system of Seoul is efficient and extensive, you can easily reach the mountain entrance after exiting the platform at Achasan station. Let's enjoy Achasan and eat traditional Korean dishes together!
