Explore the Valley of the winds

Kata Tjuta is possibly as spectacular as Uluru, but often overlooked. Pronounced Cat- a- Joo-ta and previously known as The Olgas, this rock formation is comprised of 36 domes spanning over 20km and is located 25km west of Uluru.

The Valley of the Winds includes a moderately difficult 3 hour hike taking you around a significant part of Kata Tjuta and providing impressive views of the conglomerate rock formations that are composed of boulders, granite, basalt and sandstone.

Also a part of the Uluru Kata Tjuta National Park these rock formations reach up to 1,066 metres above sea level and 546 metres high meaning it is 198 metres higher than Uluru.
Kata Tjuta is an absolute 'must do' if you are visiting central Australia with glorious views and awe inspiring landscapes.
