이 캐시는 이번 주의 지오캐시로 지정된 캐시입니다. 자세한 내용은 여기를 참고하세요.

N 서울타워는 서울 중심부의 남산에 위치한 통신탑이자 전망탑이다. 1969년 세워진 이래 서울의 상징으로 되었다. 원래는 남산타워 혹은 서울타워라고 불렀으나, 2005년 리노베이션을 거쳐 현재와 같이 N 서울타워로 불리게 되었다.

타워위에 오르면 물론 서울 전역을 볼 수 있지만, 루프테라스에서도 아름다운 서울을 감상할 수 있다. 루프테라스 가드레일에는 엄청나게 많은 자물쇠가 걸려있는데, 사랑과 우정이 변치않고 영원하기를 바라는 연인, 친구, 가족들이 걸어둔 것이다.

http://blog.daum.net/namsan365 에 따르면 이 전통은 2006년 12월에 시작되었다고 하며, 현재는 자물쇠가 너무 많아 조망을 해치고 안전상의 문제가 대두되어 제거하였다. 그 대신 7개의 사랑의 자물쇠 나무 설치하였다. 이 캐시는 이 7개의 나무중 4번째(가운데)에 설치되어 있다.예전의 자물쇠 나무는 철거되었고, 현재는 야광 자물쇠만 달 수 있는 5개의 나무가 설치되어 있다. 캐시는 가운데 나무(3번째)에 있다.




N 서울타워에 올라가는 방법은 케이블카를 타는 방법과 남산 순환버스 2번 혹은 3번을 타는 방법이 있다. 버스는 지하철 3/4호선 충무로역 2번출구, 혹은 지하철 3호선 동국대역 6번출구에서 탈 수 있다.
