MINTS at Rangataua

I have just returned from the Tongariro National park. Rangataua was our base this year to allow us to explore a little of the Ohakune side of the mountain for a change. I walked the Tongariro crossing in 2009 and have been fascinated by this area ever since.

Rangataua is a small community outside of Ohakune. A slight hiccup as we arrive because the bach had no water due to the very low water table and the pump unable to give us more than a cup full from the well. However Sooz is on the phone and soon finds other suitable accommodation to sleep five and soon we are unpacking for a second time.

Our first day is straight up the mountain to explore.
