DESCRIPTION:  This coming Saturday, Seoul International Hikers will explore a small Seoul mountain of 296 meters that still has preserved on it a pre-electricity-era communication device of a Seoul nearly forgotten. An-San is one of Seoul’s smaller mountains. From it one can see Seoul all spread out below you in the East. On top is a smoke signal station that served an older Seoul with fire and enemy alarms. When dangerous enemies approached, one to five signals were lit to communicate the threat level.One signal was lit in peacetime. Two when the enemy was spotted. Three if it approached. Four if they had crossed into the borders and five when battles were flying. The Ansan station is the second to last in an impressive line of signal towers that stretched from almost the Chinese border to Namsan.

REGISTRATION: If you would like to participate on this hike, please send an email to sihclub@gmail.com  asap as only a limited number of seats on the chartered bus are available.

--bring some light snacks (like sandwiches and fruits) and a bottle of water
