Kata Tjuta and the Valley of the Winds

Uluru’s less famous sister, Kata Tjuta, was the second stop on my grand tour of the Top End. Although it’s not as well known, Kata Tjuta is equally as impressive as Uluru – possibly more so. A maze of 36 rock domes, the site is home to a wonderful 7km hiking loop. I managed to break away from my group (who were incredibly slow and chatty hikers) and do the loop more or less on my own, which gave me the opportunity to take some awesome shots. The clean air was extremely energizing and I felt absolutely amazing after finishing this hike. It’s probably the best thing I’ve done in Australia so far (though it has some very stiff competition).
