View of Daegu
from the top of Mt.Apsan
Mt.Apsan and Apsan Park are 4.5 km south of downtown Daegu and is the largest park in Daegu and is a popular tourist destination on the Biseulsan Range. The name 'Apsan' means 'front' and 'mountains', referencing that the mountain is in 'front' of Daegu. Fabulous views of Daegu can be seen from the top. You can choose to either take one of the hiking trails to the top or take the gondola.
At the base of the mountain in Keungol Valley, there is the War Memorial Museum of the Nakdong River Battle, which took place during the Korean War. In the same area is a small amusement park. And a little further up from here is where the cable car can be boarded to take you to the peak. About 300m away from the observation deck at the peak is Eunjeoksa Temple, which offers some great photo opportunities.
Bus 910 will take you there. Or if you can get to Camp Walker, continue to walk south towards the mountain and you'll eventually see the hiking trails leading further in.
