Acha Mountain Fortress is located in Gwangjin, Seoul on Mt. Acha. Mount Acha is only 287 metres high but was a very important sight during the Three Kingdom Period in Korea. A fortress was built on this mountain by the Goryeo Kingdom with great views of the Hangang River and valleys below making it an important strategic stronghold. Many battles were fought here for control of the regions and lots of people died. The fortress is 1.3 km in length but there is not much left of it today. You can still see parts of the wall, some old tombs and other interesting things. The area is now a park that offers the usual facilities such as sports facilities, outdoor exercise equipment, walking trails and places to rest. Being elevated at over 200 metres you can get some stunning views of the Hangang River, Seoul City and more.
