Hand’s still smarting, but thought I’d do a quick post on a recent trip to Hwangnyeongsan Mountain or the Beacon Fire Station Mountain.
Do you remember the fire signals on the top of mountains in Lord of the Rings? This is exactly that (only much older, of course!)
It’s not very tall or steep, so hiking to the top won’t take more than maybe 2-3 hours. Or you can take my my preferred approach, which is to drive straight up to the summit 😂.
The pictures posted below are a combination of my first and second visits.
The first time, it was right after it had rained, so there was a lot of fog. View was still amazing though.
If you drive or take one of the paved pathways, you’ll reach the main entrance, which is right next a KBS Station or something.
I can see what you’re doing down there!
The sun was setting rapidly.
The descending sun and clear skies gifted us with an incredible experience.
Looking forward to checking it out again.
Get off at the Yangjeong metro station. It’s quite a bit of a walk from there. Or you can take a cab to the summit (about a 9-min ride).
