Sunset at Clingmans Dome: Smoky National Park

Standing at 6,643 feet, Clingmans Dome is the highest mountain in the Smokies, the highest point in the state of Tennessee, and the highest point along the 2,174-mile (3,499 km) Appalachian Trail. It is unarguably one of the best places to go for sunset or sunrise.

The Clingmans Dome hike is fully-paved and only half a mile. It was 25 mins to sunset when we reached the parking area and at one point I was sure that we will miss the sunset. Heavily Gasping we reached the Done just before the sunset.


Clingman’s Dome is probably the best place to watch the sun set in Smoky. The beautiful view of the sun setting behind the lush green mountains is absolutely breathtaking and relaxing. If I ever visit Smoky again, that’s the one spot I’d go back no matter what.
