The night view from the Eungbongsan Pagoda is considered to be one of the three major night views of Seoul, along with the Samcheong-dong road and Konkuk University’s Ilgamho. Eungbongsan is also the place where Jackson hiked a mountain at night with Monsta X Joohyeon on V LIVE’s episode 「Flower Bro」 . You can reach Eungbongsan Pagoda Exit 1 of Eungbong Station, going through the artificial rock wall park and a wooden staircase for about 30 minutes. Eungbong Mountain is not a challenging course, as it is a relatively a short hike of only 94 meters above sea level. The mountain is also a place where you can catch a glimpse of a city that does not sleep, including views of Namsan and the Han River which spreads widely in the distance. No matter which season you come to visit, each season’s charm can be fully enjoyed.
