Trampers and climbers are being warned to stay away from Mt Ruapehu's Summit Hazard Zone following warnings the volcano could be on the verge of eruption.

Scientists monitoring the volcano say pressure is building under the volcano's crater lake.

The Department of Conservation (DoC) said people should not enter anywhere that falls inside 2 kilometers of the Crater Lake.

Climbers and trampers should refer to a Summit Hazard Zone map or GPS to determine when they are approaching the zone, DoC said.

"We recommend that guiding companies do not take people into the zone. Any other climbers, trampers and walkers should not enter the zone," said DoC Ruapehu Area Manager Jonathan Maxwell.


All other roads, walking tracks, and activities within the Tongariro National Park are open.

DoC will update the situation when more information is available.

The Aviation Colour Code increased yesterday from green to yellow, indicating elevated unrest above normal levels in the volcano.

Small earthquakes have been occurring about 5 kilometers beneath the summit of Ruapehu since late October, GNS said.
