Kata Tjuta Sunrise & Valley of the Winds Tour

Kata Tjuta simply translated means 'heads many' and, given the 36 steep-sided domes of Kata Tjuta, it is aptly named. This incredible formation of rock domes extends six kilometres into the ground and is the remains of erosion that began more than 500 million years ago.

Sit back and relax as you travel into the amazing Uluru – Kata Tjuta National Park. The scenery along the way will amaze you and with luck, you may even see some of the local wildlife such as dromedary camels and kangaroos. Your experienced Driver Guide will share with you fascinating stories of the geology, history and culture of Kata Tjuta, which is deeply sacred to the local Anangu people.

On arrival at Kata Tjuta, enjoy the sunrise and learn about the geological development of the area. Watch the spectacular sunrise over Kata Tjuta with Uluru in the distance from the western dune viewing area, and enjoy a light breakfast. Each passing minute brings something new as the domes continue to change colour with the rising sun.

You will then be escorted on a 2 to 3 hour walk to the Valley of the Winds, heading first to the Karu lookout. Marvel at views across the many domes of Kata Tjuta and out into the sacred Anangu men’s area. The walk takes you down into a timeless haven within the domes through trickling creek beds.

Tour concludes at approximately 11.30am (October to March) or 12.00pm (April to September), at which time hotel drop offs will commence.
