Whilst it is about 5hrs travel to Kings Canyon - do allocate at least 8hrs or stop overnight at Glen Helen to enjoy the many sights and stops.

this is a brilliant experience, however you need to do your training before you set off. One of the best walks its right up the list. Epicurious is a wonderful and professional company to do this walk with the food and guides were outstanding.

Awesome trek! Stunning sceneries. Highly recommend it.
From 17 to 22 August 2014, Nicole, Aran & Simon took care of our group, aged between 34 and 75.
Those 3 guides were very professional & friendly, and impressively well organised.
Weather was incredibly nice, although nights were chilly - nothing that human warmth cannot overcome though.
Coming back to the camp each day after the walk and being greeted by a hot shower was a luxury we all enjoyed very much.
Ascending Mount Sonder at night was really the pinnacle of the trek. Waking up at 0100hrs to start climbing at 0230hrs is really, really worth it. Sunrise saw us at the summit, drinking hot tea and eating Tim Tams (thanks Nicole!).
That was our first "supported" trek, and we are already looking at doing another one.
Huge thank you to our 3 guides, Nicole, Aran and Simon and to World Expeditions.

In July 2014 we did the Larapinta Trail as a 'supported' walk with Trek Larapinta. The trail was clearly marked, however it was great not to have to carry big packs over the difficult rocky terrain, and to have an expert guide (Kat Cullen) to tell us about every aspect of the natural history along the way. Kat carried fresh salads and wraps for our lunches and even made tea and coffee along the way.While we were out walking every day, our other guide (Andrew) set up camp and kept us well sustained with gourmet meals for breakfast and dinner, catering for all of our various dietary requirements. There were many long days, sometimes starting in the dark due to the time of year, but we were guided expertly and had regular rest stops along the way. The scenery was spectacular, with wonderful views from the peaks and many plants in flower and many birds to be seen near water holes and creeks. Unlike unsupported trekkers who mostly travel from west to east, we trekked westward from Alice Springs, with the sun behind us in the morning, and the walk culminating in the Mount Sonder dawn climb. Trek Larapinta take a maximum of eight people on the end-to-end trek and this proved to be the ideal number. Our fellow trekkers were the ideal people to share the experience with - experienced, enthusiastic and energetic. Due to our expert carers we completed 260 km safely and happily. And as an added bonus for doing the Trail 'supported', we got to do around 30 extra kilometres getting to and from the 4WD campsites that were outside the National Park!

Hello Binny7,
Thank you for taking the time to review your Larapinta End to End experience with Trek Larapinta. As you noted taking only 8 trekkers on this very challenging journey, is just the right number of people -Trek Larapinta believes that smaller is indeed better. On any supported trekking adventure the guides play an integral role and from your review it's clear that our guides, Kat and Andrew, did a superb job in showcasing the trail, expertly guiding you and feeding you in gourmet style!
We look forward to hosting you on another trek in the future.
Kind regards
