This trail has been on my "to do list" for a while. Worth every blister & bead of sweat. It's a must do. At times I was overwhelmed by the beauty & in awe of the people before me that have lived & explored it.

This is a 'medium distance" walk that is made easier by water supply points (thanks to National Parks) and food drops (using a trek support company such as LTTS). The timing is important. The best time is winter (June, July, August) but this is also...More

This walk of highlights of the Larapinta Trail was challenging, fun, fulfilling and the sights and experiences were wonderful. The three guides we had were cheerful, helpful and great chefs. It's not for the faint hearted. Nearly every step is a potential sprained ankle, and...More

I hiked the Larapinta Trail from Mt Sonder at the western end of the trail to Serpentine Gorge solo hiking over 7 days. The terrain is rocky and challenging but the vistas are certainly worth the effort and the trail is very well marked.

Sleeping under the stars, swimming daily in waterholes, campfire stories, unbelievable walking experience - a truly amazing, challenging and eye opening experience. Made so much better through the great camping experience and support of the Trek Larapinta guides. Well done!

Fantastic walk, delicious food, amazing gorgeous, friendly, fun and helpful guides! so much better to part of a small group (max 8 hikers, with 2 guided) and to be based at one camp site (avoids packing up/erecting tents EVERY day). I would recommend this Trek...More

Yes, you can get water but not necessarily tank water, we took a filter and used water from Billabongs. But tank water is available most days
