This post is all about Uluru, now i recently went to Uluru so I am very excited to share my experiences with you.
This is a breathtaking view of Uluru, do you know why the sky changes colour? Well read on.
The colour changes result from the effects of the earth’s atmosphere on the sun’s incoming rays. The ash, dust particles and water vapour present in the earth’s atmosphere act as a filter which can remove the bluer light from the incoming rays of the sun, allowing the redder light through at different times of day. Reflections from the rock and clouds in the sky enhance the vivid colours.
How tall is Uluru:
- 348 metres high at its peak
Are there walks around Uluru? Yes
There is a full walk around Uluru which is ten Kilometres and a smaller Mala walk which is 2km.
The walk up Uluru is a treacherous two hours, you are lucky if it open when you visit because the park is very strict as to when you can climb up the rock. But anyway let us continue First you climb up a near vertical side of Uluru, with a chain, it’s still scary though.
Then you reach a small shelter/rock area and you think you’ve done it. Yay, but no, you realise that to get to the very top you must continue but with no chain.
