Postcards from Haneul Park (Seoul, South Korea)

The moment I stepped into the Park, it took only one second for me to fall in love with the scenery. The sound of the silver reeds as it dances with the wind were like angels singing. The park is actually called Haneul which means sky in English.

The perfect time to come to this place is during autumn which is around end of October to third week of November. Well I have always thought that autumn is Red, Yellow, Apple Green and Orange but I never imagined it being Silver. The good thing is that I never have to go far to see this beauty as it is located in the City.

Filipinos need a visa to South Korea. To check on how to apply for a visa, click here.

How to Get There?

The way going to Haneul Park is from the Seoul World Cup Stadium Station (Seoul Subway Line 6, Exit 1). In Autumn, the stadium will welcome you with a spread of lovely autumn trees and there is a bazaar during the night. There are two ways to go, you can walk for 20 minutes towards the park by crossing the bridge. You will see a stairs in the front, make a left turn and go straight until you get to the Redwood Tree Path. You need to climb 290 steps to go up and walk a few miles more. Going up to the skies is not easy right? 🙂

Guess What? We did not do this lol.  We went down, crossed this road, walked to the left, crossed the road again and walked to the Park and paid for a clubcart to take us up 🙂 3000 Korean won per person – return. The scenery going up is nice and we enjoyed the breeze of the wind.

Haneul Park is at the highest elevation of the five parks.

Like what I have said, we didn’t climb 290 steps…we rode a clubcart hehe

Do you know that Haneul Park was once a mountain of garbage?

The Korean government transformed it into an ecosystem and in addition, 30,000 butterflies of different species were introduced in 2000 to stabilize the ecosystem.

Going up there means seeing the whole park

Dreaming…I must be dreaming…

Just standing here and listening to the sound of the reeds as it sways with the wind is better than listening to music
