Uluru & Kata Tjuta

Why people fly over the world to see this place? What’s so special about those 2 red rocks appearing out of nowhere? Let’s have a closer look to our experience ;).

Proc na toto misto litaji lidi z celyho sveta? Co je tak speacialniho na 2 sutrech, ktery se tu objevily z niceho nic? Pojdte si precist nas zazitek ;).



Uluru is located in red heart of Australia in Central Australian dessert. It’s about 500km from Alice Springs, the closest town.

You get there, buy a $25 park pass for 3 days and let the rock hunting begin. From the gate you start seeing why you came all the way in here.. The majestic RED rock starts to be the centre of your attention. It’s so formidable that you just cant look away.

We started with less famous Olga’s, or Kata Tjuta, which is about 40km from the gate. The formation of rocks looks little bit like hives, similar to Bungle Bungle except for the color.
We walked between the hives and couldn’t get enough of colors of the rock which differ from every angle we looked at it. We missed out the changing light throughout the day, but we had seen spectacular sunset with other tourists.

Next day was all about Uluru. We waked up into a very cold and windy morning to watch sunrise over Uluru. There is a special car park for this purpose and even though the car park was almost full, we haven’t felt like it was too crowded.

We enjoyed every minute of sunrise as it was changing the whole scenery. From a dull dark rock it became shiny red “pearl” in the middle of dessert. Just us, the rock and our toy family:).

Afterwards the plan was to climb that big red thing, but plans change all the freaking times. The conditions were extremely windy and we would be like leaves in the wind – not a chance for us to go up. And so we just “went around” that big red thing. When we say big it’s really big because the walk itself is 10 kays around. Just to give you an idea of the sheer size.

The walk was impressive as the sun was still rising and changing the colours and revealing Uluru’s best kept secrets. Every step of the walk gives you unique look. The whole thing is so impressive that it got attention of a group of these cute buggers:

There’s a second article coming and you will discover if we climbed Uluru after all or not :).

Uluru lezi primo v cervenem srdci Australie, v centralni australske pousti. Alice Springs je cca 500km vzdalenou, posledni civilizaci.

U brany narodniho parku zaplatite $25 na 3 dny a honba za sutrakama muze zacit:). Od brany se vam znacne zacne menit vyhled. Vidite obrovsky cerveny sutraky cim dal tim bliz. Jsou tak impozantni, ze se proste nemuzete koukat nikam jinam!

My jsme zacali s mene znamymi Olga’s, jinym nazvem Kata Tjutou, ktera lezi asi 40km od brany. Seskupeni techto kamenu vypada trochu jako vceli uly, podobne jako jsme videli v Bungle Bungle, akorat maji jinou barvu.
Prochazeli jsme se mezi temito “uly” a nemohli jsme se nabazit palety barev, ktera se nam tu odkryvala z kazdeho uhlu. Zmeskali jsme meninici se svetlo v prubehu dne protoze jsme sem prijeli az pozde odpoledne, ale za to jsme si vychutnavali krasny zapad slunce spolecne s dalsimi turisty.

Dalsi den byl celej o Uluru. Vstali jsme do velmi chladnyho, vetrnyho rana abychom videli vychod slunce nad Uluru. Pro tyto ucely je tu specialni parkoviste a prestoze bylo skoro plny, necitili jsme se nijak utlacovani.
Uzivali jsme si kazdou minute svitani a jak to menilo celej pohled na VEC. Z nevyraznyho tmavyho sutraku se postupne stala zarici cervena perla uprostred pouste. Byli jsme tam zkratka jen my, sutrak a nase plysova rodina:)

Plany vylezt na vrchol Uluru se zmenily, protoze plany se nam stale meni. Pocasi bylo extremne vetrny a nas by to sfouklo jak listy ze stromu – zkratka zadna sance vylezt nahoru. A tak jsme “pouze” sli kolem dokola toho velkyho sutraku. A kdyz rikame velkyho, myslime OBROVSKYHO. Ono totiz je to celejch 10km kolem dokola, jen tak abyste si udelali predstavu o velikosti Uluru.

Prochazka byla pusobiva protoze slunicko stale splhalo nahoru a menilo barvy postupne se odkryvajiciho Uluru a jeho nejvetsich tajemstvi. Kazdy krok nam daval jedinecny pohled na tuto neobvyklou formaci. Uluru je tak uuzasny, ze prilakalo skupinku techto roztomilych trakturku:).
