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.
This gorge, in the West Macdonnell Range Call (130 km west of Alice Springs), is arguably the most important in the area. You can find the only hotel in this national park here. You can choose a private or shared room. Right place if we want to take a dip, the waters of this river are permanent.
We have arrived at the first important stop, if we were to decide to visit the West Macdonnell Mountain Range. Situated just 17 kilometers west of Alice Springs, so it could very well be a bike ride from the city (in fact there is a specific trail for this type of excursion).
I thought this was the most amazing part of the West Macdonnell Range (a little over 130 kilometers from Alice Springs). It is a throat like many others in the region, but this one is the only one that has a path which takes you to a vantage point to see it from another place above. If you like to walk, we have a tour called Ghost Gum Walk, around 30 minutes walking through the throat (you have to cross the river).
Small canyon, which is very close to Emily Gap, a little over 15 km from Alice Springs, called East Macdonnell Hills. A short trail, about 200 meters, leads us to this sacred place for indigenous Australians. A good choice if you visit Alice Springs, we have a small area where you can have a picnic.
Along with a little pond-stream (when it rains), this is located just over 10 km from Alice Springs. A short trail of about 100 metres leads us to this place, a sacred spot for indigenous Australians. There's little else to do here, but a good option to see if you visit Alice Springs.
This was the furthest I went from Alice Springs during my trip, nearly 170km from the city. Although the water was pretty cold, I saw other tourists swimming; I just dipped a toe in the water! You need to walk half an hour along a low difficulty path to get there.
