[Scenery] I think it’s best to use the time to go sightseeing in Kata Tjuta from the morning sun to the setting sun. The hiking trail is rugged due to the long distance!
[Fun] Wataka National Park is too worth visiting
I went to the Valley of the Kings today, also known as the Kings Canyon. It is located in Wataka National Park. It departs from Uluru at 4 in the morning and drives 3.5 hours to the scenic parking lot. Trekking the canyon circle is 6 kilometers and takes 3 hours. Its topography is very special, not only the surface is red but the rocks are stacked in flakes, as if it is a lasagna on land. Because it is mountain climbing and the Northern Territory itself is a high temperature zone in the red desert area, hikers are required to bring 3 liters of water per person. It is said that this is a legal requirement and also protects hikers. It is recommended to start early and finish the hike in the morning, otherwise you will really get heatstroke.
Driving from Uluru for the past three hours by car, the scenery is very spectacular. It is much more beautiful than the Nausicaa of Kata Tjuta. Although it takes about 3.5 hours to climb the mountain and the distance is 7 kilometers, the self-driving tour is highly recommended, but Be sure to leave early, because the temperature will rise rapidly after the sun comes out, it is recommended to go down the mountain before 12 o'clock and drink plenty of water to prevent flies.
Beautiful sunrise, beautiful scenery, beautiful park.
Wataka National Park is located about 400 kilometers southwest of Alice Springs, which is quite far away. It is very close to Kings Canyon. This national park is usually visited in the morning, and the temperature will reach 40 degrees after noon.
