SYDNEY: Thousands of people have been rushing to climb Uluru in Australia as the ascent to this landmark is permanently banned from tomorrow.

The Uluru is considered as a sacred monolith. From October 26, people will not be allowed to scale the 348-meter rock, formerly known as Ayers Rock following a decades-long campaign by indigenous communities to protect this monument, international media reports have said.

The UNESCO World Heritage-listed landmark is famed for its deep red-ochre hues. Despite its remote desert location near Australia’s Alice Springs in the Northern Territory, it has drawn hundreds of thousands of visitors.

Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park manager Mike Misso said that the upcoming ban has drawn a significant number of tourists. “It is the busiest it has been in more than a decade,” Tjuta said.

According to Tjuta, there’s a lot of people wanting to climb. (Agencies)
