Share this news:

Tongariro Crossing Car Park (027-232-0238), located at the beginning one of the most popular alpine day hikes in New Zealand, has launched a new website providing visitor information.

Tongariro Alpine Crossing is a one-way day hike, meaning that it begins and ends at different locations. As the new website explains, the services offered by Tongariro Crossing Car Park provides a more convenient option for those wishing to use their own vehicle.

The hike usually begins at Mangatepopo car park and ends at Ketetahi car park. While it is possible to walk in the opposite direction, the new website advises against this due to increased risks. The majority of local shuttle services operate to and from hikers’ accommodation, requiring a trip at both the beginning and end of the day.

Details of an alternative option are provided on the recently launched Tongariro Crossing Car Park website. Instead of two trips, the service allows visitors to park their own vehicle at Ketetahi car park, and then takes them to the beginning of their walk at Mangatepopo car park.

The company explains that this has several distinct benefits. To begin with, a single shuttle trip is less expensive. In addition, people have immediate access to their car at the conclusion of their hike, rather than having to wait for transport back to their hotel. Vehicles parked at the Ketetahi car park are protected by hourly security patrols and video cameras.

The Tongariro Alpine Crossing is 19.4km in one direction and provides hikers with stunning views of Mt Ngauruhoe and Mt Tongariro. Tongariro Crossing Car Park was established to provide the most convenient and cost-effective solution for visitors wishing to explore the area.

A company representative stated: “Using the Ketetahi car park means you are fully in control of your transport at the end of the day. You can rest assured that your car will be waiting for you when it’s time to leave, and you don’t have to wait around for another shuttle service.”
