Located across the four districts of Busan, Hwangnyeongsan Mountain envelops the city and gifts the people with densely packed green forests. Hikers who love to walk on forest paths can enjoy the forest, wine, and sky, and tourists who are fond of the nightscape are gifted with a brilliant world of light. Welcome to the Hwangnyeongsan Viewing Lounge.
Hwangnyeongsan Mountain, widely spread out at the center of Busan, has many routes to the summit, allowing you to select one that’s closest to your location. Dress in light hiking attire, and walk on the trail for two to three hours to reach the summit where the beacon is situated. This is where a fire was lighted to signal neighboring regions when important news such as the invasion of the Japanese army occurred during the Joseon period. The mountain ranges are relatively flat, which led to a well-established driving road the circulates the Hwangnyeongsan Mountain.
Each season, Hwangnyeongsan Mountain offers a unique charm. In spring, people gather to see the beautiful cherry blossom paths that form along the mountain range, and in summer, the cool hinoki cypress forests provide shelter from the heat. In fall, red maple leaves make your heart flutter, and in winter, a warm cup of coffee is served at the viewing lounge to get rid of the cold and biting wind.
There is no need to wait for the perfect time. A casual encounter will lead you to a charming experience at Hwangnyeongsan Mountain.
Look out over Busan at the Hwangnyeongsan Viewing Lounge, where you can see in all four directions. The city, seen through the green mountain peak, creates a beautiful harmony with nature and gives you a different sense of peace and relaxation. The full view of the urban district makes you like you can grasp it with your hands. The barely visible landscape gives off a mysterious feel.
The sunset at Hwangnyeongsan Viewing Lounge is worth the wait. When the surrounding area grows dark, the sky turns red, and the city is stained in a golden hue—a perfect time to meet a romantic Busan full of love. Watch the brilliant sunset while sitting on a rocking chair for a time of healing.
When the magic hour disappears, the city lights up, which is a real treat for the eyes. The black sea and colorful lighting embroider the night of Busan in a beautiful palette.
The sea and city of Busan harmonize to present an amazing panorama.
