Get in

By bus

There is an intercity coach service between Seoul Express Bus Terminal (Metro Line 3) and   Icheon Bus Terminal. The journey is 2300 KWN each way (as of May 2015), with a bus departing every 30 minutes and takes just over an hour if you can avoid the heavy traffic period. You can pick up tickets at the ticket office if needed as the ticket machines only present locations in Hangeul and there are plenty of refreshments and food available at the station for travelers who skipped breakfast that morning.

Maps

There is a well stocked tourist information center located at the entrance of Seolbong Park with maps available in English, Korean or Chinese.
