Naksan is a mountain located in various neighborhoods including Hyehwa-dong, Ihwa-dong, Dongsung-dong, Changsin-dong, Sungin-dong, Samseon-dong in Jongno-gu, Seoul. The name Naksan originated from its resemblance to the hump of a camel. Currently, it has been transformed into Naksan Park, requiring a bit of uphill walking, but it is considered one of Seoul’s renowned attractions with a slightly elevated terrain and well-established walking paths along the fortress walls.
