Day 1
We pick you up from your accommodation in Alice Springs around 8am. Our Larapinta Goddess Walk commences from the Alice Springs Telegraph Station, which marks the beginning of the Larapinta Trail. The stone buildings here date back to 1872 and they housed the first Europeans to live in Central Australia. Our first walk gives us a feeling for trekking toward the desert ranges. In the afternoon we explore the rugged Simpsons Gap and then enjoy a spectacular trek deep into the rocky heart of the ranges through the Standley Chasm Loop Walk. A short transfer takes us to the exclusive Nick's Camp.
Day 2
Enjoy the morning bird chorus as you ease into an early morning yoga session. After a nourishing breakfast you head out to your day of walking where you are surrounded by stunning views from dramatic ridge lines. From Counts Point we have views west to Mount Sonder, and for the first time we can see the immense comet impact crater Gosse Bluff. The descent from the high ridge takes us down though a mysterious forest of old Mulga trees. At the base of the ridge we trek along dolomite limestone; keep your eye out for fossil stromatolites, one of the most ancient forms of life. Our trek into Serpentine Chalet Dam reveals some early history and the chance for a swim in the dam and chasm. We return to Nick's Camp.
Day 3
After a morning mediation session we begin our walking for the day. The track takes us to the ranges of Inarlanga (Echidna) Pass and to the Ochre Pits, a sacred ochre quarry. The rainbow of vibrant colours on the wave-like ochre wall makes this a very special place to sit and meditate on the journey thus far. After a picnic lunch we visit Ormiston Gorge, a region of wonderful wildlife: Spinifex Pidgeon, wild Budgerigar, Rock Wallabies and Mistlet Bird to name a few. Having experienced some of the unforgettable highlights of the Larapinta Trail, we return past the scenic West Macdonnell Ranges to Alice Springs. We will drop you at your accommodation at approximately 5-6pm.
