Namsan Cable Car, Myeongdong Seoul

After trying to find an easier way to Namsan Seoul Tower and walking in circle around the Namsan walking trail, we finally made it to the cable car station. If you don't want to hike all the way up to Namsan Seoul Tower, this is your best option.

At the price of KRW 8,500 (return), Namsan Cable Car runs from the base of Namsan Mountain up to Namsan Seoul Tower.

We still had time before we needed to board the next cable car, so we bought something to quench our thirst.

Up, up and above. Oh right, if you don't want to walk to the Namsan Cable Car Station (like what we did because we got lost), you can take the Namsan Oreumi (i.e. Namsan outdoor elevator), the inclined outdoor elevator. It only takes about two minutes from the entrance of Namsan 3rd tunnel (near Myeongdong Cathedral) to the parking lot of Namsan Cable Car station.

After you have alighted at the station near to Namsan Seoul Tower, you still need to walk a bit to reach the tower. Along the way, you will see Namsan Bongsudae Beacon Tower site.

You will be able to see the re-enactment of how the beacon light was used during the Joseon Dynasty daily from 11.30 AM to 12.30 PM (except on Mondays).

We know we were pretty much near to Namsan Seoul Tower when we passed by this pagoda, which was used as one of the mission venue for Running Man in its earlier episode.
