You will get to Changwi Gate of the wall after 2 hours Hiking. You will be able to decide to go hiking continuously to Mt. Inwang or go down to Sejong village.
Bukjeong Village, a hillside community of humble homes that’s something of a throwback to the Seoul of decades past. Picturesque Bukjeong Village spreads out beyond the Ammun (Secret Path), which is located on the Seoul city wall towards Seongbuk-dong, near Waryong Park. The village consists of a cluster of some 500 tiled-roofed houses built in the 1960-70s and is a well-known shooting location for TV dramas and films set in 1960-70s Seoul. This private tour is designed for people who want to experience different views of Seoul.
The imposing Seoul city wall
The wall, which follows the ridges of Baegak, Naksan, Namsan and Inwangsan, the four main mountains surrounding the center of Seoul, has been constantly managed since its initial construction in 1396. The wall measures between 5 and 8m high and are 18.6km long and it bears witness to the role played by a city wall in the life of a capital city, still sustained in modern day Seoul. You are going to walk from Waryong park to Changwimun gate for about 2 hours. Upon arrival, you will begin walking up to the wall escorted by our guide. It will be a great workout, but all your hiking effort will be rewarded with the fantastic scenery.
Sejong Village Food Street
Sejong Village Food Street, a narrow alley lined with restaurants. While many food streets in Seoul are dedicated to a particular dish, Sejong is far more omnivorous, with gopchang and jokbal places, galbi barbecues, bunsiks, pojangmachas, a french fry stall, and a pizza place with Seochon microbrews on tap. Its customers are a mix of neighborhood old timers, students from the nearby women’s university, local residents, and area art gallery hoppers, and it’s maybe partly due to the diverse clientele that the more modern eateries seem to mesh well with the older establishments.
