Ketetahi craters

The Ketetahi explosion craters... people bathe in the hot springs draining this rift on the side of Mt Tongariro. The area is excluded from the park and ownership is retained by the Maori. Several trampers have been injured with serious burns when the ground has collapsed beneath them - be careful! From the springs you can look out over a grand vista north.. especially nice if there is snow around.
