Mount Ngauruhoe

Climb Mount Ngauruhoe

An unmistakable volcanic feature of the Tongariro Alpine Crossing, we found Mt Ngauruhoe to be a challenging but rewarding climb. But should you do it?

Taranaki Falls

Walk the Taranaki Falls Track

When the weather on the Tongariro Crossing isn't great, the 6 km Taranaki Falls walk from Whakapapa is a nice, easy alternative.

Lower Tama Lake

Walk the Tama Lakes Track

The Tama Lakes Track has lakes, scenic mountain views and a photo-worthy waterfall. It's also a lot less crowded than the nearby Tongariro Crossing.
