This tramping track is regarded as the best one-day hike in New Zealand. You can freedom walk the crossing or enjoy the company of an experienced guide. Most walkers start at Mangatepopo which then takes them over alpine meadows up and over the moon like landscape of Mt Tongariro. The finish is through the pristine rain forest towards the Ketetahi Road end of the track. The crossing takes about seven hours of steady walking to complete in good weather. It may take longer in winter or if walked from the Ketetahi end.
The Tongariro Alpine Crossing is in the 80,000ha of Tongariro National Park New Zealand, a dual world heritage site. Among its highlights are steaming vents and hot springs, old lava flows, beautiful water-filled explosion craters and stunning views. On clear days you can see Mount Taranaki in the west, Mount Ngauruhoe, the Kaimanawa Ranges, Lake Taupo and beyond.
This map of the Tongariro Alpine Crossing is a wonderful memento for those who have walked the track or perhaps intend to in the future. Highlighting many of the sights you see on the track, it can be a talking point in your home.
Enjoy this great looking and wonderfully informative map.
