Valley of the Winds Reviews
We did the full circuit in just less than 3 hours (medium to low level of fitness in hot 42 degrees). I recommend you walk anti-clockwise (walk to the 1st lookout, then 2nd lookout) as the ascent and ... more »
Kata Tjuta is beautiful! A bit more off the beaten track. Enjoy a morning sunrise from the viewing platform and the hike to Valley of the Winds. You can hike to lookout #2 and back. The trail is well ... more »
The full circuit 7.4 km walk is described as difficult and grade 4 in the brochure we had. I think that most of the reason for this is the trail is very loose and uneven and takes reasonable care to traverse without a possible ankle mishap. There are 2-3 steep sections but they’re well spread out and reasonably short. Good well fitted walking shoes are a must, decent runners at the least. Take your camera of course because you’ll want it. Photography will add 30-45 minutes to the walk I’d guess. Water and snacks are a must. Water is available in the car park. If you’ve done the rim walk at a Kings Canyon then this is a similar length and time without the first 1000 steps to reach the plateau. Easier, not easy. We enjoyed it and surprise surprise we were able to FaceTime with our daughter and show her where we were. Coverage happened on the return leg.
Beautiful walk with rewarding views. It's marked as 'difficult', but we found this walk to be quite easy, with very few steep uphill sections. We stopped a lot to take photos and did the walk in about 2.5hrs. Hiking boots are best to use as the path is quite rocky. Also, we did the hike anticlockwise (like the signs said) but I think the views would probably be a bit better clockwise (though fantastic either way!).
