Mt.Namsan in Gyeongju, Korea (A UNESCO World heritage Site)

Located in the south of the city, Mt.Namsan contains 13 royal tombs, 150 temple sites, 130 stone Buddha statues and carvings, 100 stone pagodas, 22 stone lanterns, and 4 mountain fortresses from the silla Kingdon (57 BCE-935 CE). It is not known exactly how many more relics are still hidden or lost on this mountain.

Mt.Namsan, about 10km North-South and 4km East-West, has about 40 valleys and ridges, extending from the two main praks; Geumo-bong (468m) and Gowi-bong (494m).
