Small miracles.  A bit of a hazy day, as it seems to always be in Seoul these days, but it has a great look, fresher air than the basin of Gangnam, and lots of people in full out hiking gear (snicker). It’s a good little climb. I didn’t expect it to be quite as steep…but it only takes 30-40 minutes to get to the top of the mountain.

Directions: Take Line 5 to Achasan Station and go out exit 2. Turn left at the first intersection and then turn right at the first T in the street, Left at the second T. You will be going up a noticeable hill now. We just …
