Bukhansan, or Bukhan Mountain, is a mountain on the northern peripheries of Seoul, South Korea. At 836.5 meters (2,744 ft) above sea level and bordering a considerable part of the city, Bukhansan is a major landmark visible from most districts of the metropolis. The name “Bukhansan” means “Mountain north of the Han,” referring to its location approximately ten kilometers (6 miles) to the north of the Han River. During the Joseon era, the peaks marked the extreme northern point of Seoul. Popular throughout the year, Bukhansan, and Bukhansan National Park is renowned for birdwatching, hiking and rockclimbing.
