Our Guest Host today is Ann Chin!

We went to Mt Ruapehu and the kids skied and we frolicked in the snow and tobogganed with our boogie board. Ruapehu is not just a place to ski. The Chateau Tongarirois one of NZ's historic national icons with unsurpassed views of Tongariro National Park. We couldn't afford the Chateau, we stayed at Crusader's lodge which is an Alpined building and I was reminded of the Swiss Alps.
In fact you can visit any time, the view is stunning. The water engineer went on the Tongariro Crossing in summer and marveled at the volcanic formation and beautiful natural features of lakes of different hues.
The Ruapehu District located in the central North Island of New Zealand. It includes the world heritage Tongariro National Park - home to Mount Ruapehu, Mount Ngauruhoe and Mount Tongariro. Also the Whanganui National Park - home to an abundance of flora and fauna, and the mystical Whanganui River - the longest navigable river in New Zealand.There are many walking tracks for trekkers if the snow has melted.Some people even trek in winter.
