Namsan cable car is an aerial tramway in Seoul, which runs from the base of Namsan Mountain to N Seoul Tower, which is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the city.

Each cable car can carry up to 48 people and has glass on all four sides, allowing riders to explore the beautiful scenery of Seoul’s mountains.
