Tongariro volcanoes, New Zealand, aerial photograph. The volcanic peaks on Mount Tongariro include Red Crater (1900 metres) and the nearby Emerald Lakes (lower centre), and the main summit (upper right, 1968 metres). The Emerald Lakes are lakes that have formed in volcanic craters. Mount Tongariro has at least 12 separate volcanic vents, including Red Crater which last erupted in 1926. Mount Tongariro began to form some 260,000 years ago. Along with Mount Ngauruhoe, it forms the Tongariro volcanic complex on New Zealand's North Island.
