A walk to Soda Springs

The track is part of the Tongariro Alpine Crossing Track, about a 2 hour walk up following the Mangatepopo stream. Great views of Ngauruhoe's and its recent lava flows, also views if Tongariro.

At the headwall of the Mangatepopo valley you find the cold water Soda Springs and in summer lots of mountain buttercups ..

Next time it would be great to do the complete crossing ..
