    If you do get to jump into the crater, remember to conserve energy for the long walk out! And be sure to take water with you!
    The walk out takes is via the valley track in the top centre of the photo, taking you back to the rim of the crater.

    Unique Suggestions: Be sure to take a water bottle. Wear a hat if in the summer, and take a protective coat if not mid-summer. The weather can change in minutes up here. Good walking footwear is essential as well.

    Fun Alternatives: Helicopter services from Rotorua Airport are available.
