We have been experiencing what is called as 꽃샘추위 (kkot saem chu ui) or spring frost. We had a really great spring weather last week and now it’s as if we’re back to winter! Perhaps it’s because I didn’t post a lot about the last winter we had so I was excited to visit Namsan in winter.
Last February 17th, we visited “N Seoul Tower” in Namsan. The mountain was covered in snow. We took the electric bus from exit 4 of Chungmuro Station. Even though the weather was cold, it didn’t stop the lovers, tourists and families from going up to see a winter-y view of Seoul. As always, we had a great time just looking at the people enjoying themselves. We walked on our way down to the path of the old fortress wall.
I can’t count how many times I’ve been to Namsan. I was there when the old Seoul Tower was still open. I always visit the mountain after my checkup when I was pregnant. My son is almost 7 years old already and like a true Seoulite, we never get tired of going up the mountain and look over the city we love so much ;p
If you’re ever in Seoul, never miss the chance to go up the mountain. If you can, walk on your way down to inhale the lovely scent of pine and breathe the less polluted air in the mountain. It’s free and isn’t Namsan in winter just spectacular?
