Love Alpine trekking? Your Pocket Ranger

One outdoor  friend in particular suggested an App a few weeks ago, and found it rather useful if your into Alpine trekking in New Zealand. When he demonstrated the functionally of it. As I found it shows you the amazing points of  interest of the Tongariro National park, in which it’s a World Heritage Area park.

One thing it does show you the points of interest around the great Alpine such as the Soda Springs, the South Crater, Red Crater, and the Emerald Lakes, also the wilderness of  the volcanic landscape attractions of the national park .

Few things of many aspects of the Pocket Ranger- Project Tongariro information where to walk along the track to each attractive way-points, and the associated amenities like parking, bathroom and suitable camping base sites, as you progressively move from one track trail to the next.

One interesting important thing is that it gives you advice on safety which is very important to say to everyone where you’re going so that everyone could you find you later just in case. Also it gives you stories of each attractive way-points of the each hiking you may trek too. One new feature is it comes with a QR code reader,  along the way with signage of information QR codes provides one of the quickest ways of referring to information.

This App is done with the conjunction with the New Zealand Department of Conservation and other non profit communities
