What you'll do

Suwon Hwaseong Fortress is surrounding the center of Suwon city, and there is only one gate which is disconnected from the fortress. My trip starts from that point in clockwise or counterclockwise depend on temperature and weather.

Total length of the route is approximately 5.7km, and it may take 2~4 hours depends on your walking speed and resting time.

Some parts of my route are inside way of the fortress, and other parts are outside of the fortress and I can give you a choice(with explanation and recommendation) from some point.

We will take a rest at least once, with my picnic mat during the hiking, and back to the gate we started.

When I move to Suwon from Seoul, I felt in love with the city. During my entire life in Seoul, cultural properties were something to protect and preserve, not something to enjoy.
But Suwon Hwaseong Fortress UNESCO World Heritage is living cultural prosperity that you can enjoy with your own sense.
There is a hill full of beautiful pine tress and pavilion on the top, stunning water gate with 7 arches, tranquil pond with old willow, and exquisite stone wall so you can experience nature, history and culture at the same time.
I can show you genuine beauty of this proud heritage of Suwon through my own route.

Where you'll be

Hwaseong Fortress was made 220 years ago, so you are going to see the heritage from that period mostly, but there are some Dolmens from the Bronze Age and even most of Suwon doesn't know that.
