Tongariro Alpine Crossing in New Zealand
The first thing we think is important is to know a little where the Tongariro Alping Crossing or Trekking Tongariro in New Zealand. This location, famous for the filming of many films, among which The Lord of the rings, which made it even more known, is located in the Tongariro National Park, and occupies an area of land of almost 800km2 of the North Island of New Zealand.
Its most famous area, which is where the trekking runs, are three active volcanoes: the Ruapehu, the Ngauruhoe and the Tongariro. All of them can be seen on clear days from different points of the walk, as well as lakes of impossible colored waters and landscapes that seem like another world.
