Mt. Geumjeong Fortress

In Korea, mountains are everywhere. It’s really different for me because I come from Texas and it’s very flat there. I love being able to look into the distance and see the mountains. My friends and I decided to take the cable car up one of the mountains here so we could visit Mt. Geumjeong Fortress. It was a super easy 20 minute hike each way. You can look at the pictures below.

 We weren’t sure what to expect, but we definitely weren’t expecting to only see a stone wall. Apparently there are several different “gates” like the one we saw, but they are quite spread out. If you take certain hiking trails you can see the walls of the fortress span quite a distance. I’ve seen some of my friends pictures and it’s really a great site. That’s definitely on my to do list.
