Owner description: Kata Tjuta is Pitjantjatjara meaning ‘many heads’. This spectacular landform lies about 50 kilometres drive from Uluru and Yulara. This area is an Anangu men’s site and is sacred under Tjukurpa(traditional law). Everyone is welcome and encouraged to visit this place but as with all areas of the park, please stay on the marked tracks.

“Valley of the Winds”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2012

Hiking around the Kata Tjuta ( The Olgas) took us half day. Must plan your trip ahead. Olgas are situated 40 km away from Uluru.

The Valley of the Winds hike is out of this world. Must complete this walk before 11 AM in most of the days due to hot weather conditions. We managed to do the whole circuit which wasn't that hard. What beautiful landscape.

There are lot of flies around the area during the hot season. The normal fly sprays we get in the supermakert won't do any good. It attracts more flies:) Best to purshase the fly cream from the shops in Ayers Rock Shopping Center. It keeps them away. The head net also came in handy . If not the flies and the 7 Km would have driven me crazy.

“A walk and scenery with few equals”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2012

Take a sunrise trip to The Olgas, plenty of water and go on the Valley of the Winds walk. The scenery is stunning and the colours in the morning light will rival anything you would hope for around Uluru.

“Awesome walking!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2012

I rate the Ogas (Kata Tjuta) higher than the rock. The walking trails are excellent. The scenery spectacular. Remember to take plenty of water and your camera. One downside like so many other places I have been is that tourists tend to speak very loudly as if they think it scares the animals away. This can be annoying if you are trying to enjoy the moment.

“Underappreciated”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2012

Both Kata Kjuta and Uluru share the geological background but Uluru got the early press. It may actually be a bigger single rock, but, if you have a knowledgeable guide, he'll explain why the Olgas are more intellectually and culturally interesting.
