21st April 2013 - Hiking up 인왕산
|Take the stairway to access to the fortress.|
|The hike up the mountain was relatively an easy one.|
|I stood on a huge piece of boulder to take this picture.|
Scary but the view was really spectacular!
Was that Seoul Tower from far??
They went further up but I did not advance any further cos I did not want to reach Buam Dong too late. I think I can get to Buam Dong from here but I was not sure of the route. So, I took the subway and bus instead ㅎㅎㅎ
|I did not take the same route for my return trip. I just took the steps all the way down.|
|Koreans can picnic anywhere ^^|
|All this while I was wondering why the fortress looks kinda new to me. 재 told me part of the walls went through a recent reconstruction. Hence, that explains why.|
Turn to your right when you reached the end of the steps. Again, there was a young army boy whom I approached to ask him for directions to Dongnimmun subway station.
|Go straight after I turned right.|
|Oh, there was another section of the fortress wall which I did not noticed.|
I wonder where it leads to.
|Just walk down all the way..|
|Spring flowers ^^|
The tiny blue flowers caught my attention.
|Passed by the Wild Flower Garden but did not went in to check it out.|
|Saw the temple? This was the slope I was referring to in my previous post ^^|
Up next is lunch at Buam Dong.
