One the first day of this 3-day hike, I hiked through the popular Tongariro Alpine Crossing, a memorable walk with spectacular otherworldly views.
After injuring it on the last hike, knee gets swollen and in bad shape. I also miss the shuttle bus to the start of the Tongariro Northern Circuit.
A re-injury of my left knee makes me doubt whether I would be able to complete all the hikes I had planned for New Zealand.
Sleeping in the common room is warmer, but it’s guaranteed that you’ll be awaken by the first person who gets up and starts cooking breakfast.
A very short day which ended at a beautiful hut right next to the lake, with plenty of ducks and swans around.
