In Uru-Kataqiuta National Park, you can enjoy the unique scenery of 36 boulders, and hiking in the wind Valley among the boulders, that is, the wonder in the canyon, is an important part. The fresh and cool wind from the canyon makes people forget the 40 degree high temperature in the desert. I can't forget the different shapes of rocks and their unique red color. Remember to bring enough drinking water on foot.
Walking through the Valley of the Winds takes four to five hours, and many domes along the way are amazing. First, we should pay attention to sun protection, second, we should pay attention to fly prevention, and third, we should drink more water. Fourth, bring enough water, although there are drinking points on the road, but the water is salty, the taste is not very good, and there is a big gap between wearing shoes and wind valley landscape to tell the truth and psychological expectations. If you have a walking plan for King's Canyon, it's recommended not to come to Wind Valley. The scenery is much worse than King's Canyon. On the way down the hill, I saw the most magnificent sunset of Kataqiuta. Because it took some time to climb the mountain, I only saw the Kataqiuta after sunset at the sunset viewing platform. If you want to see the sunset, it is suggested to check the local sunset time and arrive early.
Katatrata has two hiking routes, one is the Valley of the Winds and the other is the Walpa Gorge. The Wind Valley Trail is 7.4 kilometers long and takes about 3 hours to complete. The Walpa Valley Trail is 2.6 kilometers long and takes about 1 hour to complete. Wind Valley is said to be the source of inspiration for Japanese cartoonist Hayao Miyazaki "Wind Valley" because he likes animation "Wind Valley" and decides to go hiking to the real Wind Valley to see what this secret place looks like. Hiking in Wind Valley is a bit like exploring. There is no artificial Road in the whole trail. It is a road stepped on gravel. Sometimes it needs to climb over big rocks. There are no roads stepped on, so we have to rely on our imagination to find our own way. There are few people around, few signs, and ambiguous places where small arrows carved on stones or small roadblocks built with branches suggest the right route.
Kataqiuta is a rocky mountain with a larger area than Ayers Rock. It means "the land of many heads" in Aboriginal language. The crystallization of weathering and erosion over the past 500 million years, there are various stories of the Agunans. There are two hiking routes. One is the Wapa Canyon, which is simpler, and the other is the Wind Canyon, which is a long distance.
Wind Valley is a famous walking route in Kata Tjuta, which is 2.6 kilometers long. Traveling through one of the 36 rounded boulders is a rare opportunity to get in touch with Kata Tjuta. Because of its unique terrain, Wind Valley has become a natural refuge for desert animals and plants. Walpa means "wind" in the native languages of Yankunytjatjara and Petjantjarjara. The Canyon is surrounded by cliffs and cliffs. The wind inside is so strong that people sometimes stand unstable by the wind. It is strongly recommended to wear windbreakers with hats, so that the hat will not be at risk of being blown away.
There are only two scenic spots in Uruguay. One is Else Rock, the other is Kata Chuta. They share a toll gate. The fee of 25 yuan per person is unlimited for three days. The Australian aunt, who charges, politely gives us an introduction in Chinese. There are very few vehicles on the road and the speed limit is between 80 and 110 kilometers. The most common sign is to prevent animals from moving along the Northern Territory Highway of Australia. As soon as they leave the toll gate, Catachuta and Alston are already in sight.
After seeing the valley of the wind, when the sun is about to set, set out on time and head straight for the big stone, Ayers Rock, to see the sunset. Just after the car left the hotel, the cold road became busy in the afternoon, including the buses in the town, all of them were in one direction, the sunset point of Ayers Rock.
