Uluru at Sunset, N.T.

Uluru, as seen from the sunset viewing area, in the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park in Australia.
The park board decided unanimously that the climb will close permanently on October 26, 2019.
Sacred to the Yankunytjatjara and Pitjantjatjara people, climbing Uluru (also known as Ayers Rock) is strongly discouraged by them for its cultural significance and their concerns for people’s safety.
Over 30 people have died and numerous others have been injured while attempting the steep ascent.
Known as Anangu land, the arkose sandstone formation, 348 meters high is believed to be half a billion years old.
