Starting from the car park at the end of Redbank Gorge Road, Mount Zeil, this walk takes you up to the summit of Mount Sonder via the Larapinta Trail Section 12, visiting Mount Sonder Lookout along the way. This track may challenge you with its gradual incline and the lack of shade, but the views you’ll get at the summit may last you a lifetime. Being able to see tens of kilometres in all directions really is an experience like no other. Take in the vast scenery and try to identify the surrounding peaks as you rest and enjoy some food. The track is well-maintained and features reflective markers for you to spot them easier. In fact, most people go for sunrise hikes and enjoy the night sky full of stars as they make it up there. You can stay at the Sonder Camp midway and make this a multi-day walk as well. As aforementioned, the track is quite exposed so try to start as early as possible and wear a hat. Bring lots of food and water, and bring layers of clothing in colder parts of the year. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
