Mount Ngauruhoe

Taupo - Ruapehu

Mount Ngauruhoe is an active stratovolcano or composite cone made from layers of lava and tephra. It is the youngest vent in the Tongariro volcanic complex on the Central Plateau of the North Island. It first erupted about 2,500 years ago.

At 2287m, Mount Ngauruhoe is the third highest North Island peak on our list, and its classic volcanic cone shape make Ngauruhoe a peak bagger’s favourite. After featuring in Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings as Mt Doom, and with Ngauruhoe’s access from the Tongariro Alpine Crossing, you are likely to have a lot of company on a fine summers day. It is not to be taken lightly however, as its steep scree slopes and alpine conditions make getting to its summit a challenging but rewarding day tramp.
