Destination: Bugaksan

Whether you spell it Bugaksan or Bukaksan, 부각산 rests north of the Blue House (the residence of the Korean president), and south of the more well-known Bukhansan. At 342 meters high, it's far from the the tallest mountain in the area, but it's certainly one easily accessible by public transportation. The path to take follows several kilometers of the fortress wall, which runs along the ridges of the mountain that once kept Seoul secure. While walking the wall you'll pass 숙정문 (Sukjeongmun), or the North Gate for the city, and end up near 창의문 (Changuimun), or the Northwest Gate.
