Day 2 ~ Ormiston Gorge to Finke River ~ This is our first full day of hiking that will take us through the beautiful Ormiston Gorge Pound & west MacDonnell Ranges. Grade 3 ( medium ) Section 10 of the trail. We will return to Glen Helen Homestead to swag camp tonight after we enjoy a tasty dinner around a beautiful campfire.
Day 3 & 4 ~ Finke River To Redbank Gorge ~ This challenging ( but rewarding ) 26km section 11 of the trail is  Grade 4 ( hard )  & takes us through some spectacular scenery. The sacrifice of this incredible scenery is no hot showers for 2 nights. The landscape at this end is dominated by Mt Sondor, the fourth highest mountain in the Northern Territory.

The mountain is known traditionally as Rwetyepme. In local Indigenous dreaming, she is a pregnant woman forever doomed to lay on her back & watch the sky - the mountain peaks resembling the woman in the legend. It's an arduous climb, grade 4 ( hard ) well worth the challenge, you will return to Alice Springs tonight where the group will be dropped at The Aurora Hotel for a nice well - earned hot shower, rest & to celebrate the days of hiking & lifelong memories made with a special farewell dinner.
