Gupabal Station is a station on the Seoul Subway Line 3. Some Line 3 trains only offer service up to this station, although it is not the technical end of Line 3 (Jichuk is the actual end). The name comes from 'Pabal', a Joseon-era post station that existed in the area. Nearby attractions include Jingwan Neighborhood Park, Gupabal Falls, Bukhansan National Park and Seooreung, a cluster of royal tombs.[3]
