    Bukhansan Mountain is one of three representative natural wonders of Seoul along with Namsan Mountain and the Hangang River. Bukhansan Mountain has also been called Samgaksan Mountain as there are three peaks: Baegundae, Insubong, and Mangyeongbong.

    Among the three peaks, an interesting fact about Insubong is that it used to be called Buaak because its façade is shaped like a mother carrying a child. As interesting as this historical trivia is also its amusing pronunciation!

    What’s more—Bukhansan Mountain is known for its grand nature that shows different faces every season. Especially come autumn, Bukhansan Mountain is draped in colorful foliage as if going through a fashion transformation.

    Bukhansan Mountain attracts visitors from all over the city and across the country every year for its stunning autumn foliage.

    We invite you to visit Bukhansan Mountain this autumn to see beautiful foliage in the heart of Seoul.

    Location: Ui-dong, Gangbuk-gu, Seoul
