Namsan Cable Car Tours

The Namsan Cable Car in Seoul runs from the Hoehyeon-dong platform at the base of Mount Namsan up to the Yejang-dong platform near the Namsan Tower. Naturally, it’s a scenic journey, offering 360-degree views of Seoul and the mountain by both day and night.

New cable cars were put in place in 2008, which have increased the capacity of the cars and improved them so that they feature glass on all four sides, giving visitors more of a panoramic vantage point.

This is a popular attraction, with around 50,000 people riding the Namsan Cable Car every month, and it tends to get particularly busy in the evenings. Those looking for a quieter time to ride are advised to visit in the morning. As an alternative to the cable car, active types can instead opt to reach the top of the mountain and the tower by walking up.

Practical Info

To reach the Namsan Cable Car, take Exit 3 out of Myeong-dong Station and follow the street to the right of the Pacific Hotel. It’s around a 20-minute walk, mainly uphill. Alternatively the Namsan Oreumi opened in 2009 to transport those less able (or willing) to walk to easily access the cable car station. This is the first outdoor elevator of its kind in Korea, operating from near the Namsan Tunnel entrance and transporting visitors to the Namsan Cable Car station in just a few minutes. The Namsan Cable Car is open daily from 10am until 11pm.
