Great! It's nice to see another kiwi peak added to SP. They are definitely underrepresented. This is also a great start on your first SP page!



A few things. The text is pretty solid, but it needs photos. Tongariro is such a majestic peak, the text can only do so much. Also, Lat/Long coordinates would help.



Good start and I look forward to more NZ mountains.

You caught me early! I was just uploading the photos - hope you like them.



I have tried looking for the Long/Lat cordinates but cant pick them up anywhere - any web ideas?

Nice! The photos are great. We never got the chance to visit Tongariro last September when we were on the north island, since it was snowing at record-breaking levels. Still, we had a wonderful time.



As to coordinates, we use topozone in the US, but it doesn't work for the rest of the world. GoogleMaps is probably the best bet. If you zoom in in satellite view mode, you can center the map on Tongariro. Then click the "link this page" button in the upper right and the decimal degrees coordinates will appear in the URL bar (web address). I don't know which one is Tongariro, but this should get you pretty close:

Cheers

One thing I forgot to mention: you might discuss in there how Tongariro relates geographically and altitude-wise to the other North Island Volcanoes. IIRC, there are three in a cluster and then Taranaki over on the west coast.
