The Tongariro Alpine Crossing requires that transport be arranged from one end. For this TURANGI ALPINE SHUTTLES can collect you from your accommodation at either 6.00 am or 7.30 am taking you to the preferred starting point of Mangatopopo and collecting you from Ketetahi carpark at either 3.00 pm 4.00 pm or 5.00 pm 7 days a week.

 

 The crossing traverses the length of Mt Tongariro (18.5kms) and can take 6 - 9 hours depending on fitness level. The track starts at the Mangatepopo Valley and finishes at the Ketetahi road carpark where we will collect you up and return you to your pick up point. It is our policy that we will not send you on the track if we think the weather is unsuitable or if you are not properly kitted out. The weather at the carpark can be totally different than that on the mountain. Be prepared to change your plans and turn back especially if the wind picks up or visibility deteriorates. It is recommended that you use local transport to the track start so you can be accounted for and that you take a cell phone.
