Valley of the Winds Walk

Top choice Hiking

in Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park

The 7.4km Valley of the Winds loop (two to four hours) is one of the most challenging and rewarding bushwalks in the park. It winds through the gorges giving excellent views of Kata Tjuta's surreal domes and traversing varied terrain. It's not particularly arduous, but wear sturdy shoes and take plenty of water.

Starting this walk at first light often rewards you with solitude, enabling you to appreciate the sounds of the wind and bird calls carried up the valley. When the weather is forecast to reach 36°C, trail access is closed, usually by 11am.
