Namhansan Fortress

Although a little way out of Seoul, Namhansanseong can be easily reached by the subway system (line 8), so I feel justified in posting a photo taken there under the Seoul umbrella.

Namhansanseong means South Han Mountain Fortress and dates back to the 1600s. However, much of what can be seen today has been repaired/restored in more recent times. The shot above shows part of the fortress wall and hikers making their way around the base and top of the wall.

Another shot of the wall snaking off into the distance can be seen here.
