Summary Mount Olga or Kata Tjuta (Pitjantjatjura name) is part of a group of monoliths jutting out of the desert approximately 20 miles west of Uluru and rises 1,066 metres above sea level. Kata Tjuta is a Pitjantjatjara Aboriginal word meaning "many heads" and one of the stories tell of the great snake Wanambi who is said to live on the summit of Kata Tjuta and only comes down during the dry season. Kata Tjuta is sacred to the Pitjantjatjara people (Anangu), who have inhabited the area for more than 22,000 years. Rock engravings can be found in many areas. The sandstone domes of Kata Tjuta are believed to be about 500 million years old
