Terrific Taupō

The great volcanic lake in the middle of Aotearoa New Zealand’s North Island

IN the middle of January, I visited Lake Taupō. This is the great lake near the southern end of the Waiariki region, an area of volcanic lakes, volcanoes and hot springs which runs from Mounts Ruapehu, Ngauruhoe and Tongariro in the central North Island out to Whakaari/White Island, by way of Rotorua and Tarawera.‍
