Interest in the Tongariro Alpine Crossing has gone "through the roof" since Mount Tongariro erupted.

National Park Village Business Association chairman Murray Wilson told APNZ the number of people visiting, which provides information about the crossing, increased from an average of about 240 to 2400 in the 24 hours following the eruption.

While it was yet to be seen what long term effects the eruption would have on business, Mr Wilson is optimistic it would ultimately be a good thing for the local economy.
