Namsan Tower is 236.7 metres high and, because it stands on top of Mount Namsan, it rises to about 480 metres above sea level, thus allowing visitors to enjoy a great panoramic view of Seoul. Because of the panorama, many local dwellers as well as tourists enjoy climbing up here for early morning work out or for a quixotic walk after dark.

Since the completion of construction in 1975, the tower has been a favorite attraction for both locals and international visitors. For these reason, the place is so famous.
