Surprisingly not very windy even though there was a strong wind blowing. There are are some steep parts. Need a good pair of shoes and take water. It says 4 hours which is very conservative.

A very enjoyable and picturesque hike. Well worth the effort. More interesting than Uluru. We arrived at sunrise on the hop-on-hop-off bus and spent half a day enjoying the view.

A fantastic place to visit, make sure you get to the second station as the views in the Valley of the Winds are sensational. It is challenging though achievable with a mid level of fitness. Make sure you carry water and some food for sustenance.

We did an Aat tour. It was worth it for the knowledge of the tour guide. Makes the whole experience so much better. The weather will be very very hot in December so may be too hot to do a walk there. They cancel walk when... More
