Mount Ngauruhoe is an active volcano, made up from layers of lava and tephra, she rises to 2291m.
It is the youngest vent in the Tongariro National Park and first erupted about 2,500 years ago.
Although seen by most as a volcano in its own right, it is technically a secondary cone of Mount Tongariro.
The volcano lies between the active volcanoes of Mount Tongariro to the north and Mount Ruapehu to the south, to the west of the Rangipo Desert and 25 kilometres to the south of the southern shore of Lake Taupo.
