Schöner abwechslungsreicher Weg. Wenn man über die Rangiwahia Hut zum Mangahuia highpoint geht und von da aus dann den Deadman's Track wieder runter, bekommt man eine schönen Rundweg mit atemberaubenden Aussichten ins Tal hinunter.

If you hardly exercise and your day job is sitting in a cube staring in to a computer screen as if it was an abyss sucking your soul out of your eye sockets, you will probably be tempted by this trail, one of the great walks oohhh ahhh. you came to New Zealand for this. You may be suffering from a lack of sleep from jet lag and a migraine and sick with a chest cold that makes you want to spit out your lungs. You may be insufferably cheap and choose to tent camp slinging a 65 lb. pack with a camp stove, an iPad, and other non essentials instead of using the huts. You may cut your trek down to 3 days instead of 4 due to weather and it's just a few more kilometers for just one day. If so, you may be in a lot of pain towards the end and wonder if it was worth it. What makes that a great walk? Clever advertising, you got me. You feel ashamed of how pitiful you must have looked over the crossing and of how out of shape and fat you've let yourself become. However, you soon realize you've pushed yourself farther and harder than you thought you could. you feel a sense of accomplishment and wonder what you're really capable of. After a shower and a day to recover you become hungry for more. Although beautiful, this trail for a person like me, is more about overcoming than views. I've been on harder treks but because of lack of physical preparation and all the choices I made to make it harder, this was the hardest trek I've ever made.

A faire absolument dans le sens inverse des aiguilles d une montre. Mieux en terme de dénivelé et surtout de monde. Tous les gens qui font la Alpine Crossing la font dans el sens normal!!

Much steeper than I was expecting But what a beautiful walk

Amazing hike. I really liked Tamma Lakes , it’s a long detour but it was worth it for sure

Teilweise steil Wir haben 4 h für hin und zurück gebraucht tolle Aussichten

It's uphill most of the way but I wouldn't say it was steep. Absolutely awesome view once at the hut though!

This is a truly spectacular trail that takes you through an amazing variety of landscapes and scenery. Forests, rolling hills, steep mountains, desolate lava rocks, stunning lakes, majestic waterfalls. You name it, this trail likely has it. I did the trail in about 3 days, staying the first night at Oturere Campsite and the second night at Mangatepopo Campsite. I think going anti-clockwise was definitely the way to go. I stayed at the Skotel Tongariro the nights before and after the hike. I will say, though, that it should probably be marked “Difficult” instead of “Moderate.” I’ve done many of AllTrails’ difficult hikes, and this was by far the most challenging trail I’ve done. If I were to do it all again, I think I would have done it in 4 days instead of 3. I took some online advice to go straight from Whakapapa to Oturere, skipping the first hit and campsite. While not skipping the first hut would have made for a short day 2, skipping it made for a VERY long day 1, and I was quite ready for a break by the time I got to that first hut. I also MIGHT consider skipping the stretch between Mangatepopo and Whakapapa and just catching a shuttle from the Tongariro Crossing trailhead back to Whakapapa. That stretch of trail was by far the least scenic, and was amazingly unkept. You are literally walking through 1 meter deep trenches for large chunks of it.

This trail is basically up, up, up on day one, rewarded with phenomenal views (including a breath-taking sunset) across the Manawatu & Rangitikei, a restorative rest overnight in a small, warm hut, them down, down, down on day two! I would recommend down-loading or printing a map for driving directions to the start of the trail as there is no Wifi once you're off the main road. The road leading to the start of the trail, Renfrew Rd, is shingle and very narrow in parts. When you get to a fork in the road (and can see farm buildings ahead on your right) turn left up a hill, through a gate and past a DoC sign. There is a toilet and a carpark at the beginning of the trail. If I was to do this trail again, the only extra thing I'd pack would be some mosquito spray - there are swarms of very large mosquitos in the toilets up at the hut!

Phenomenal landscape! Challenging in some sections, however, worth every step and emotion. Highly recommend!

great hike but too many people on the crossing.

A good hut. The trail is very muddy though. The trail leading to hut is fine (intermediate). But the Gable end loop from the hut is a hard trail...which is very muddy. But excellent view

I did this hike in March in 3 days instead of 4 and could of done it in 2 days. It is awesome! I did it anti clockwise so I did the summit at the beginning of the second day. Be aware that there is a LOT of people on the Tongariro crossing so leave for the summit very early in the morning. But the view is stunning and I’d do it again!

I haven't done this hike, but for those who don't know, the volcano in the center of the loop, Mt. Ngauruhoe, is Mt. Doom in the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Type 2 fun :) This hike has become a bit of an inside joke between my partner and me, because of how miserable two of the three days were. I'm a volcanologist so I was absolutely stoked to hike this one, but we were hit with a rain storm during the ascent (right around the chains) and it didn't let up really for the next two days. Even weather aside, after the first day, it's really just a couple of days of wet Mordor. We slept in huts all 3 nights, which was a treat, but the other tenants were messier and louder than what I've experienced on other treks. Anyway, it's a fine hike, trail is well maintained and the difficulty is moderate if you do treks regularly, but Day 1 (aka the Alpine Crossing), in my opinion, had all the gems and the rest was a 5/10.

One of my favorite hikes of all time.

Volcanos, craters, tussock- what more could a girl ask for! such an amazing hike. We took our time and explored a bit so finished in 5 days. We started first with the Alpine crossing. This part is steep. very steep. I was also using my hands to walk I was at such an angle. Lots of rocks so be careful of your ankles and knees on this one. Did the optional Glacier lake on day five, but this is all scree and pretty steep. Worth it!!!

Amazing trail. Beautiful landscapes from Mars like terrain to green moss forests. Highly reccomend and in a tent is better than the cabin personally.
