With 223km of mountain trails, dusty desert tracks and narrow canyons, the Larapinta Trail offers travellers the chance to experience Australia’s pure desert heart in all its enormity. It can be walked end to end – a serious 18- to 20-day odyssey ? or it can be tackled in parts via any of the 12 distinct sections. Road access also means that you can organise food drops to trailhead storage rooms supplied by trail management. Out here, the peace is complete, the sky is endless and the varied landscapes throw in new challenges each day. You can stand on a ridge and gaze over an endless landscape where nothing is manmade. Traversing this desert territory is both a physical and mental challenge of endurance and isolation; most days you may not see another soul.
