The trek through Tongariro National Park along the Tongariro Alpine Crossing is regarded as one of the world’s best one day walks. The journey will take you along the spectacular views of the lava flows of the volcanic landscapes, emerald pools and mountain area.
Tongariro Crossing - Hike Details
When you are planning your next adventure hiking the Tongariro Crossing, allow a full day for the Tongariro Alpine Crossing which will take about 8 hours with breaks. You will begin your journey from Mangatepopo through the Mangetepopo Valley, onto the volcano views of Mt Ngauruhoe and through to Ketetahi Springs.*
Huts in Tongariro National Park
There are some great side treks as well that are worthwhile checking out like the Mount Ngauruhoe & Mt Tongariro treks to the summit. A great way to explore the further side treks, or to help break up the 8 hour day is by staying in one of the huts along the way. There are two serviced huts, the Mangetepopo Hut and the Ketetahi Hut that are great places to stay.
The Tongariro Alpine Crossing is a great experience with spectacular views and a must do while in New Zealand. For more information about the Tongariro Alpine Crossing visit the DOC website.
*Parts of the Tongariro Alpine Crossing have been affected by the 2012 eruptions of Te Maari crater; it is important to check with DOC for an update on track conditions and which huts and areas are open to the public before embarking on this walk.
