20,000 leagues under the sky, 2004- travel blog

Car parked infront of Mt Rupahua (Mordor), we saw SFA.

Scenic route to Napier (Toilet stop).

Tellytubby Land

The main Volcanic area of New Zealand and location of many scenes from the Lord of the Rings films including Mordor. We drove up to the volcanos from 2 different directions but as soon as we got within a few miles the mists would come in, the heavens would open and the volcano's remained hidden. Glad we didn't hang around though as Turangi was hit by it's "biggest storm in living memory" the next day with a major clean up operation under way.
