A good sunrise is akin to a good breakfast – enjoy both on this special Kata Tjuta and Valley of the Winds tour! See one of the best sunrises the world has to offer at Kata Tjuta while tucking into a delicious breakfast and a cup of your preferred morning beverage. Picture perfect, right? To sweeten the deal, you also get to visit the Valley of Winds for even more awe-inspiring views!
You ride to Kata Tjuta on an air-conditioned coach with an expert driver/guide who is game for adventure, just like you. Leave it to the guide to enlighten you about the Anangu who are the indigenous tribe that has been around for 22,000 years. The informative commentary should get you up to speed as you reach Kata Tjuta before sunrise.
Pick your spot and start to tuck into your breakfast and watch the glorious sunrise unfold before you. Watch the sandstone rock formations change colour as the sun slowly emerges dispelling the darkness that surrounds. Kata Tjuta is a group of large, domed rock formations or bornhardts and are iconic sandstone structures formed over millions of years of erosion by natural forces. Also known as Olgas, this area is particularly sacred to the Anangu men and are under Aboriginal law.
Post sunrise, you will commence on the Valley of the Winds walk. The Karu lookout gives you a great view across the many domes of Kata Tjuta and you will be in awe of this natural wonder.
Your walk to the Karingana lookout can be a little tiring, but you’ll soon come to realise it’s well worth the effort. It takes you down through trickling creek beds into a timeless haven within the domes. During extremely hot periods, this walk will be substituted with an alternative. You are free to choose shorter walks, if you’re not up to walking to the second lookout.
