    Start early to avoid the crowd (we took the 4.50 am shuttle) Stunning views around the volcano, and amazing coloured lakes. No major difficulties but quite long...but totally worth it !

    In short one of the great walks of the world. Start at Mangatepopo Carpark and walk up the valley to the Devils Staircase. Climbing that and a further steeper climb you get extraordinary views of Mt Ngauruhoe and Ruapehu...

    We stayed at the Plateau Lodge campsite which was an ideal start point as the Tongariro Crossing Shuttle picks up and drops off right outside. An additional bonus is that you have complimentary use of their hot tub. Whic...
