New Zealand: Tongariro Crossing Track

Photo gallery: Tongariro Crossing Track

We spent one day in Tongariro National Park which is rich in cultural identity and has a dramatic scenery. It was granted dual World Heritage status, for its outstanding natural features and the cultural importance the peaks and rivers represent to the local Maori.

We made the 17 km long and 8 hours lasting Tongariro Crossing Track which spans the length of Mt Tongariro via two craters and several lakes. It was our most difficult trek in New Zealand but it a was challenge :). Finally it was an adventure and an unforgettable experience!

Tongariro Crossing is rated as the best one day trek in New Zealand and listed by many in the top 10 day treks in the world.
