Kata Tjuna




Close to the "Uluru", in the same National Park you can also find the "Olgas", 36 Mountains that are even more important to the Aborignal people than the "Uluru" itself. "Kata Tjuna" are real mountains, whereas "Uluru" is one single rock (scientists believe that it continues up to 5 or 6 km beneath the surface). All the stories and myths around "Kata Tjuna" are unknown to us and the Aboriginal people hand it down to their children maintaining the secret amongst them.
Tourists are only allowed to take two different routs through these impressive mountains.
