We got up early (no choice when sleeping under the stars) in order to see the sunrise at the foot of Uluru. After breakfast ala zombie mode, we went Uluru. The idea was to go around Uluru at the time of sunrise. All motivated, we started to do the trail. 9.4 km distance with a freezing wind (and a thin sweater for me), it’s not a a piece of cake but it was worth it and landscape was amazing.
After 2 hours of walking, we finally arrived at our starting point and in front of us was the path to go on top. Uluru is a sacred monument for the Aborigines and they asked people not to climb on it. The choice remained open and the path is accessible. Our guide told us that he never climbed and he did not know if he would. For me the choice was simple – the road was closed that day due to strong wind.
After the walk around Uluru, we bid our goodbyes and we went back to camp for lunch. The afternoon was only bus ride to join the next camp near Kings Canyon.
