The scoria cone within the Ngāuruhoe summit crater largely formed during the 1954-55 eruption and was the location of the 1974-75 eruption, seen here from the larger crater rim to the E. The Ngāuruhoe cone is at the southern end of the Tongariro volcanic complex and is one of the youngest features. Taranaki is to the W, visible in the distance.
