      Stayed in a 4 bed dorm room, bit on the small side but didn't matter because we didn't spend much time in there anyway! good facilities. didn't have to que for showers or kitchen. close to town with free parking.

      We just got back from a weekend in Ohakune - The Queenstown of the North... maybe? It's about a 3.30 hour drive from Wellington (unless you happen to leave at rush hour on Friday night, then it might take you closer to 4.30 hours)..

      Ohakune is a small town about 30 mins drive to the slopes. I'm used to Europe where I've mostly stayed in …

      ... for a photo before walking to the main crater itself to have a glance down into the volcano itself. The outer ridges were littered with red lava rocks, the whole experience was completely surreal. I couldn’t quite believe I was here, after the most epic slog of my life.

      Just before we were about to attempt the terrifying descent downwards, I asked Mattijs if he would take my photo of me holding one of the aforementioned lava rocks. Just as I was walking over ...

      ... br> After sliding on my ass a few times walking down the crater to the lakes, it was about three hours into the hike and time for lunch beside the beautiful Emerald Lakes!

      After 20 minutes or so of admiring the lakes, we began the long descent down the other side of Mt Tongariro. As we descended from the height of the volcanoes, the terrain quickly changed from volcanic rock to alpine scrub, then to a tropical rainforest. We ...

      ... we couldn’t see too much, and what we could see was lightly snow covered. Also there was a ski field with lots of people having fun skiing and snowboarding - that wasn’t in the films when they showed Mordor! The beginners slopes looked really easy and tempted us into considering renting some gear and having a go until we realised we only had half an hour till everything closed - maybe we’ll find some time ...

      ... hike halfway to the Red Crater and then back again but as we reached the point at which the detour up to Mt. Ngaruhoe (a.k.a Mt.Doom from Lord of the Rings) begins it was just too tempting to climb up there.

      We dug our crampons into the snow and scrambled up the mountain, which has a gradient of 33 degrees and is shaped like a cone. We slid a few times and were helped by footprints already made by three previous ...
