Three weeks ago, I did the Tongariro Crossing with a bunch of friends. We had the most amazing weather, sunny, not too cold, with a little bit of breeze. There had been a fresh dump of snow two nights prior so most of the mountain was covered in snow – which made it more difficult to walk up and that the side trips like Mt Ngauruhoe i.e. Mt Doom from LOTR, were off limits. It took us the full 8 hours to do, 2 hours in I was wondering why I put myself through this. The views are amazing, and you feel great afterwards for having conquered it.
