Mount Doom / The Tongariro Alpine crossing / The best one day hike in New Zealand. /These are all the names for the 19km hike we did through the Tongariro national park.

The views of the volcanoes are amazing ….. and this is what we should have seen…

However at the start of our hike the weather was overcast and by the time we reached the point of no-return we were caught up in a crazy snow blizzard making this very difficult and dangerous.

We decided to push on when other people were turning back and although it took a couple of hours longer than it should we made it over the crossing.

I think we are a little cursed after the Foggy Machu Picchu and Blizzard Tongariro….what will be next in Eva and Bills adventures? … Well i can tell you… beautiful sunshine the following day… lol
