Namhansanseong fortress walls are a UNESCO World heritage site in South Korea, close to the capital city, Seoul. In June 2015 I took a day trip from Seoul to visit this site where there is a lot of beautiful forest surrounding the impressive walls and I spent a day bird watching and admiring the view having received a number of recommendations about the location. Even so, I was the only Western tourist present on the day that I visited.


Namhansanseong was easily visited from central Seoul by underground and then a short bus ride, we knew which bus to get on by following the people in hiking gear. There was a village within the fortress walls where we were able to get a nice lunch and try some Korean snacks and drinks later in the day. An enjoyable and photogenic day trip from Seoul; an account of my bird watching day at Namhansanseong can be found here – Birding at Namhansanseong, South Korea.
