The huge sandstone monolith, which is located almost in the center of the country, has some impressive statistics. It’s 348 meters high, with a circumference of just over 9 km. The rock has been sacred to the Aboriginal people for millennia, and seeing it is an unforgettable experience. Although hiking to the summit is no longer allowed, a helicopter tour of Uluru and the surrounding desert is perhaps the best way to appreciate it. 2.
