カタジュタ/ The Olgas(オルガ岩群) The Olgas

サンセットに合わせてカタジュタ/ The Olgas(オルガ岩群)のそびえる岩のドーム周辺をハイキングして周囲の鯖を背景に光り輝き、変色する様を観察しましょう。

オーストラリアのRed Centre(レッドセンター)には自然の驚異と文化的ランドマークであるカタジュタ(Olgas(オルガ岩群))があります。日の出とサンセット時には光り輝く、そびえる岩のドーム周辺をハイキングしましょう。ウルルの西約40km に位置する黄土色の形状は魅惑的に美しく映えます。



Walpa Gorge Walk(ワルパ・ゴージ・ウォーク)は岩石の多いコースで、緩やかな登りとなっており、道中では希少植物を目撃することができ、spearwood(スペアウッド)の林に続きます。カタジュタ最長のコースがValley of the Winds Walk(バレー・オブ・ザ・ウインズ・ウォーク)で、難度は中程度で息を呑むような景観を楽しむことができます。非常に険しいものの、7.4km に及ぶコースはチャレンジするだけの価値があり、ドームとドームの合間、川床、そして人里離れた空間に誘ってくれます。


「無数の頭」を意味するカタジュタは地元のアボリジニの人たちの聖地であり、22,000 年以上前からこの地で暮らしてきました。そうした人たちのスピリチュアルな人生の重要な焦点を形成しています。観光客としては文化ツアーに参加すると、この地方の聖なる歴史やDreamtime(万物創造の時)にまつわる秘話を学ぶことができます。

Uluru–Kata Tjuta National Park(ウルル – カタジュタ国立公園)はアボリジニの土地であり、Anangu(アナング)の従来からの所有者とParks Australia によって共同管理されています。公園は自然と文化価値の双方からUNESCO(ユネスコ)から世界遺産に指定されています。

    Valley of the Winds walk
    This is the major walk around the Olgas and people rate it highly. It’s a total of about 7.4km but quite steep in parts and takes about 4 hours. A reasonable fitness level is required to do this walk.

    On the way you’ll see rare plants that thrive in little microclimates amongst the rocks and also a grove of spearwood. Traditional owners used to make spears from this, eat its flowers and use its gum. There are two lookouts and the views are breathtaking. One of the nicest things about this walk is the solitude, where you will be able to really take in the spirit of this amazing place.

    Walpa Gorge walk
    If you want a shorter and easier walk than the Valley of the Winds, then Walpa Gorge is a great alternative. The walk is very beautiful and is only 2.6km return and takes approximately 1 hour .
