Back-tracking a bit to Karijini here because I couldn’t upload galleries from my iPhone before now.
Bunurrunha is a Sacred men’s site used by the Traditional Custodians of this land, and we were mindful of this during our walk. I could feel the power of this mountain and it was with respect that we walked up it.
Max and I set our alarm for an hour before sunrise to drive and have brekky at the base on Bunurrunha so we didn’t walk the 5 hour; 9 1/2km path; 1165mts high climb in the heat of the middle of the day. It started out incredibly windy and then became very hot, but apart from being a little challenging at times – was a spectacular walk with breathtaking views to the landscape around and the Marandoo Iron Ore mine to the south.
Have a look at the gallery of happy snaps so you can have an idea of the beauty and strength of Bunurrunha.
