Since we were suited for really wet weather (and we are borderline sick), i didn't think it was best idea. Daniel kept wanting to explore. We compromised and went a tad further but nothing cool showed up. After we got back to the village, we immediately went for the hot chocolate and hot drinks. We passed 5 people on the same trail, ...

We had to be a little patient but a short wait proved worthwhile as the clouds passed and revealed a stunning view below. Honestly, this was one of the most stunning vistas we had ever seen.

... walk starts off at 1100m above sea level walking up through volcanic lava fields in the shadow of Ngauruhoe. After an hour, the path gets steep as you pull yourself up man made steps to a plateau that overlooks another huge open space crater floor of Mount Tongariro. A 20 minute walk across the flat crater brings you to a steep climb up to Red Crater, a beastly looking crater with a deep red interior smoking with sulphur. It affords fantastic views across the Waikato ...
