The Larapinta Trail
Standley Chasm is a trailhead and information point of the Larapinta Trail, a popular thru-hiking track across the West MacDonnell Ranges.
The long-distance trail is one of the most memorable ways to experience Australia. It traverses beautiful and diverse terrain, providing hikers a seemingly endless supply of breathtaking views. Along with Standley Chasm, it passes by a number of other natural landmarks, such as Simpsons Gap, Ellery Creek Big Hole, Orniston Gorge, Glen Helen and Mount Sonder.
Walking the trail is totally flexible. There’s no need to complete the 223km long trip end-to-end with so many possible shorter options available.
Many hikers of the Larapinta find Standley Chasm a welcome overnight stay, day trip, transfer location, food drop or simply just somewhere to freshen up.
