Overview
Get started bright and early to conquer both Kata Tjuta and the Valley of the Winds in just a half day. Eat a light breakfast while watching the sun come up over the domes of Kata Tjuta as your guide explains their geological and spiritual significance. Take a walk through the Valley of the Winds to get panoramic views from central lookout points, with options for more or less challenging hikes. Round-trip transport means you don't have to worry about logistics.

What to Expect
Spend your morning in a magical way: watching the sunrise and hiking in Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. The day starts with an early morning pickup at your Ayers Rock Resort accommodation. Board the comfortable, wifi-equipped coach and enjoy the ride.  Arrive at Kata Tjuta in time to eat a light breakfast while you watch the sun rise over the rocky landscape. Make sure your camera is charged so you can capture the stunning views. Learn out their geological origins and the reasons they are sacred to the Anangu people. From there, start out on a guided walk through the Valley of the Winds, stopping at the Karu viewpoint. If you are looking for a challenge, continue on to the Karingana lookout for panoramic views. Alternatively, set out for a more leisurely hike through the domed rocks. Your guide is happy to ask any questions about this ancient and sacred area.  Return to your accommodations by midday, which leaves the afternoon free for other activities.

I did the tour in early February, meaning the temperatures are high. However, it meant a small group of four plus the three guides (one in training). This meant we could move at a quicker pace and had more time to chat with the guides and hear their stories. The tour has a

This was a great half day tour, starting out with the sunrise of Uluru and Kata Tjuta and then embarking on the Valley of the Winds hike. The views were spectacular and we were given every opportunity to take photos and relax on the way. The trek is hard with lots of unstable
