Hwangnyeong Mountain View Lounge Opened at Best View Point in City

The City of Busan and the Busan Tourism Organization opened the Hwangnyeong Mountain View Lounge on Hwangnyeong Mountain on August 8, 2015.

The Hwangnyeong Mountain View Lounge is located in front of the KBS Hwangnyeongsan Mountain transmitting station, right under Bongsudae (Hwangnyeongsan Beacon Fire Station). The facility was built on a 276 square meter area and visitors are able to have coffee, beverages and casual meals while enjoying gorgeous views of the city.

The city established a plan to build the Hwangnyeong Mountain View Lounge in 2013, broke ground in August 2014, and completed the facility in May 2015. It is managed and operated by the Busan Tourism Organization.

Hwangnyeong Mountain is a popular site for climbing, hiking and driving, and boasts spectacular city views as well as beautiful natural scenery. The mountain covers a wide range of the city including the Nam-gu, Suyeong-gu, Yeonje-gu and Buanjin-gu Districts. Visitors are able to see almost the entire city from atop the mountain.

To promote the Hwangnyeong Mountain View Lounge to the public and provide convenience to visitors, the Busan Tourism Organization operates a Busan City Tour bus via the Hwangnyeong Mountain View Lounge.

In addition, the city plans to install additional observation decks to view Busan Port, Busanjin-gu, Geumjeong-gu and Yeonje-gu on Hwangnyeongsan Mountain.
