Kings Canyon is one of the most beautiful sights in the Territory.
The canyon is about 230 kilometres south west of Alice Springs off the Stuart Highway.
Watarrka National Park holds its secret tightly, revealing little to the traveller arriving at its gates.
The surprise comes when this extraordinary chasm suddenly reveals itself, its sandstone walls plunging over three hundred feet into the earth.
This is paradise for the serious and very fit walker who can handle the steep rise to the rock domes at the top of the canyon to enjoy the breathtaking views below.
It is a challenging four hour hike.
