Kata Tjuta, Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park

Although Ayers Rock 25 km (16 mi) gets all of the fame, Kata Tjuta is pretty spectacular in its own right. This group of 36 rocky domes also rises mysteriously out of the flat Outback, with the highest peaking 546 m (1,791 ft) above the plain. If you're keeping score, that's 198 m (650 ft) higher than Ayers Rock. If you've come all this way to see the more famous of the rock formations, don't miss this one. Put Kata Tjuta at the forefront of your travel plans using our Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park vacation planner.

  • The sheer scale of the extraordinary scenery to enjoy. Hiking trail has benches for resting place, a little shade. You must bring the drink because it is quite hot.

  • Come to Uluru in the summer. Uluru was closed due to high winds early in the morning, so try trekking to KaTjuta! Good luck, here was opened. You can also rises, because there is little shade, but almost no shade and pretty tough to close the Valley of the wind. I went in a mountain style, of foreign residents is pretty rough style. I think, so even if you only walk long Rocky underfoot, like Cliff climbing Mountain shoes with peace of mind, not tired. It is a vantage in Japan, see also horizon. Good morning for most tries at 11 o'clock close circles over the back was so if.

  • For me, I found this place more enchanting and engaging than Uluru. The walk is serene and the landscapes you see whilst on the walk are out of this world. Definetely have it on your list if visiting the uluru or Kings Canyon
  • Only 17% of visitors of Yulara travel to Kata Tjuta. Worthwhile inclusion to your visit to Uluru.
