The olgas, also known by their origin...

The Olgas, also known by their original name of Kata Tjuta (meaning many heads), is a rock formation of the same origin as the nearby Uluru, and together form a single National Park. It is not a single monolith, but several formations of a similar height and rounded shapes. As in Uluru, its shape changes significantly as you approach them, and the trails are spectacular. It is about 25km from Uluru and the road connecting the two sites is the very best of the entire park. The largest one is known as the Valley of The Winds. It runs through the central canyon and provides spectacular views from its two balconies. The trail is named for the strong currents of wind that can traverse the valley at certain times.

Sunset with a red tone

One of the most impressive features of Uluru or The Olgas (Kata Tjuta) is a red tone they acquire at sunrise or sunset. After a good day's hike you can see that wonderful moment on one of the two formations. In either of the two sites are specific areas for the beginning or the end of the day, so it's pretty easy to see. In our case, I think the most beautiful was able to observe the Moon "coming out" inside the Olgas, while rocks turned a deep red.

A 26km to Uluru / Ayers Rock, the 28 domes of eroded stone stand in the middle of one of the thinnest in the world deserts. Olga the mountains, like Uluru, are not trained red stone as you might think looking at pictures, but the origin of the rocks gray / black on which the dust of the desert is filed creating the illusion. These rocks are all listed in the traditions and myths of local Aboriginal tribes (a center dedicated to the explanation of these cultures lies at the foot of Uluru). The entry on Aboriginal land is not free, and it is possible to camp if you want to see these places in different lights there, but I recommend you to embark on a 'tour' as if the air-conditioned minibus and group life take away the charm of this place, you can avoid the common technical problems in this area, and a guide will give you many explanations and information.

A 26km d'Uluru/Ayers Rock, ces 28 dômes de pierre érodée se dressent au milieu d'un des déserts les plus plats au monde. Les monts Olga, tout comme le rocher d'Uluru, ne sont pas formés de pierre rouge comme l'on pourrait croire en regardant des photos, mais sont à l'origine des rochers gris/noirs sur lesquels la poussière du désert s'est déposées créant l'illusion. Ces rochers sont tous inscrits dans les traditions et les mythes des tribus aborigènes locales (un centre dédié à l'explication des ces cultures se trouve au pied d'Uluru). L'entrée sur les terres aborigène n'est pas gratuit, et il est possible d'y camper si vous souhaitez observer ces lieux sous différentes lumières, mais je vous recommande de vous embarquer dans un 'tour' car si le minibus climatisé et la vie de groupe ôtent le charme de cet endroit, vous pourrez échapper aux ennuis techniques fréquents dans cette zone, et un guide pourra vous donner nombre d'explications et d'informations.

This is an inselberg made up of 36 domes, just like Uluru, located in the same park as this one. It is arkose, and is from the same set as Uluru. It is also a sacred site for the local Aboriginal people, the Aboriginal name meaning "many heads" representing petrified giants. Originally it was a single rock, which is then eroded mountains 36. Its name comes from Olga Nikolaevna of Russia, while Queen of Württemberg at the site was discovered in 1872 by Ernest Giles. I advise you to do the full tour of the site, which lasts 3 hours. This will not always be possible depending on weather conditions: in fact part of the site is called the valley of the winds and it may be closed if the wind is too strong.

Il s'agit d'un inselberg composé de 36 dômes, tout comme pour Uluru, situé dans le même parc que celui-ci. Il est en arkose, et est issu du même ensemble que Uluru. C'est également un site sacré pour les aborigènes locaux, son nom aborigène signifiant "beaucoup de têtes", représentant des géants pétrifiés.
A l'origine, c'était un rocher unique, qui s'est ensuite érodé en 36 monts.

Son nom vient d'Olga Nikolaïevna de Russie, alors reine de Württemberg lors de la découverte du site en 1872 par Ernest Giles.

Je vous conseille de faire le tour complet du site, qui dure 3 heures. Cela ne sera pas toujours possible selon les conditions climatiques : en effet une partie du site s'appelle la vallée des vents et celle-ci peut-être fermée si le vent est trop fort.

Good, but not comparable to ayers rock

Also known as the Olgas Kata Tjuta, Uluru is a nearby place and worth a visit. In The Olgas, apart from seeing the sunset, it is a good idea to do one of the trekking there in the area as the Walpa Gorge and the Valley of the winds. We did both walks, but most of the Olgas was nice to see them from afar, with its orange, leaving the vast plain

Bien, pero no comparable con ayers rock

Las Olgas también conocida como Kata Tjuta, es un lugar cercano al Uluru y que merece una visita.

En Las Olgas, aparte de ver el atardecer, es buena idea realizar alguno de los trekking que hay por la zona como el Walpa Gorge y el Valley of the winds. Nosotros hicimos ambas caminatas, pero lo más bonito de Las Olgas fue verlas desde lejos, con su color naranja, saliendo de la inmensa llanura

Kata Tjuta, anciennement connu sous le nom de Monts Olga, sont de grandes formations de roche situées dans le parc national d'Uluru-Kata Tjuta.

Il y a 36 sommets de granite et de basalte qui donnent avec l erosion cette pierre rouge. Ils sont à environ 25 kilomètres d'Uluru et j'ai adoré cette ballade car contrairemant à Uluru, on va visité un canyon entre les monts, les paysages y sont plus différents et interessants.

Pour ces visites, il est conseillé d'avoir un guide qui vous expliquera les sacrements aborigenes...
