Hiking in Summer and skiing in the Winter are the most popular activities here. Tongariro Alpine Crossing which a side trip to the summit of Mount Tongariro, one of the great walk in New Zealand. It's a 19.4KM journey, 6 1/2 - 7 1/2 hours (3 more hours in return to climb up to the summit). Hike in the unstable environment and unpredictable weather is really challenging. The view at the summit of the three incredible lakes is amazing!

Every journey form who I am now, a better me.
