It was the coldest day during the 9 days that I was in Seoul. It was about -8 degree Celsius but with the wind chill, it was about -18 degrees. I had mufflers, scarfs, gloves and a super big down jacket and I was still freezing. I also had about 4 heat pack stuck in my clothes. We decided to take a break from shopping and go sight seeing. I read about Hanuel Park or Sky Park. Saw some really pretty pictures online and decided that I need to go.
To reach Hanuel Park, you have to go to the top of this mountain. It's not too bad, except that the weather was too cold that day and it was dropping as the sun was setting. We should have came here early when the sun was bright and up.
There are stairs to go up, making it a very easy path to go up.
The view as we walk up was already very amazing.
The higher we go, the better the view.
Finally we were here. Although I can't read what's on the rock, I assume it says Hanuel Park? I really don't know. It took us a long time to walk up as Cho kept on saying she is tired and had to stop for break. It took us much work to encourage and motivate her to keep walking. So, I just had to take this picture to mark our success!
It's so beautiful there. The only sad thing is that the sky was already pretty dark by the time I got here and it was almost impossible to take a picture. Also, it was freezing cold. We have lost We only stayed for about 5 minutes before going down.
The night scenery as we walk down was amazing as well!
Go to World Cup Stadium Station exit 1 and head to Haneul Park! It takes about 10 minutes to walk to the bottom of the hill/mountain. The amount of time for you to reach the top really depends on your own body. For me, I had no trouble going up. If it wasn't for Cho, I think I would have gotten up in about 5 or 10 minutes max. However, Cho has to stop every few steps and looked like she was dying from the walk, which actually wasn't that much. They have numbers on each steps. I looked and there was only about 400 steps to go up, which is totally not bad at all. If you are sick of shopping, why not come here to look at the scenery? It's something I probably won't find in Hong Kong. At least the weather in Hong Kong isn't good for walking. It's just too hot and sticky with lots of bugs in Hong Kong.
