It is many years since I went to Mt Tarawera however I doubt if it has changed. We went in a 4x4 vehicle and it was amazing looking down into the crate. I still remember it was a bright sunny day and the colours of the crater were great. Definitely worth a visit.

The view from the top of the mountain was amazing and going down into the crater was an experience

We used to drive up here occasionally when you were able to take your own vehicle. Last time we went up which was a few years ago now, the track was in a state of disrepair. And I hear you are no longer able to take own vehicle, it has to be escorted tours?
