Uluru or Ayers Rock is a massive sandstone monolith forming more than 550 million years ago. Uluru is sacred to indigenous Australian. For us, Uluru is the overwhelming presence of the majestic rock. I highly recommend visiting this Australia’s spiritual heartland–it is truly once-in-the-life-time experience.
December is one of the hotter months of the year. Wearing suitable attire, such as light clothing, hats and sunglasses in daytime is a must. However, we forgot that the suggestion does not apply while we spent 3 hours on the plane–we were covering ourselves with blankets and winter jackets. Finally we arrived at Ayers Rock airport, a small airport in the middle of desert. Once we stepped off the plane, the heat attacked us in no time. The temperature almost approached 50 degree Celsius. How could we survive?
