What you get to see at Dara Park?
I presumed that it was yet another big park like other parks in South Korea stretched over a vast area. But don’t be confused by its name. It’s just a sunset point. There is absolutely nothing else to see. The area is not even big enough to take a walk.
This is what you are greeted with as soon as you reach Dara park. Nature at its best!
People start coming to the place way before the sunset time. The greenery of this place is so calming.

Sunset You Can’t Afford To Miss!
Plan a trip such that you visit other places nearby & get to Dara park just in time for sunset. The view from this point is awe inspiring. You will go crazy clicking pictures. I did :D. I wanted to capture every single moment. Sit there, relax & let your senses soak in the beauty of this amazing place.
Every time I witness the art of nature, I completely fall in love with it. Look at the beautiful hues of sunset.
This is another shot taken from the same spot. The two pictures show drastically different scene. The colors, lighting, mood everything changed in a matter of few minutes.
‘Another moment, different hues, different mood…there is no greater artist than nature
The sun is slowing setting in the horizon with a promise to come back tomorrow. A new day…a new beginning.
If this is what the parking area looks like, I could spend hours sitting in the parking lot 😀
