Uluru (known also as Ayers Rock) is a sacred mountain for Anangu people, Aboriginals, who are indigenous habitants of the country. Anangu request all visitors to respect their culture and not to climb the mountain nor photograph certain parts, which are a place of their rituals. Uluru is known for its colour changing, the rock is glowing red during sun rise and sun sets making it a breathtaking experience.
