Global Volcanism Program | Image GVP-12806
The Upper Tama Lake is in the center of this photo with the southern flank of Ngāuruhoe to the right, both of which are eruption centers of the Tongariro volcanic complex. The lake fills several craters that were active around 10,000 years ago, with lava flows s180,000-200,000 years old forming the cliffs surrounding it.
