  • The place is quite good land marked if you are driving from Uluru / Kings Canyon to Alice Springs. Please do stop by for the breathtaking view encompassing a wide wide horizon..

  • Stunning finish to the Larapinta Trail. Having trekked 14 days from Alice Springs, this final leg was completed under a full moon before dawn, walking with our headlamps turned off. Utterly bewitching and really made us reflect on the thousands of years of occupation of this land before European arrival. Crowded on top but views of the rising sun (and setting moon) were easy to find and well worth sharing! WARNING: can be dangerously cold at night, and dangerously hot during the day. Be prepared for extreme conditions and a six hour hike.
  • Great views. It's a very rewarding hike and not a particularly difficult one. I'd highly recommend a pre-dawn start to watch the sunrise.
