The 25 September 2007 eruption of Ruapehu produced lahars on the N and E flanks from Crater Lake, with the E flank lahar seen here. Two lahar descent paths are visible, the wider one closer to the center down the Whangaehu Glacier, and the narrower path further to the left down the Whangaehu valley. The lahar merged and continued for 200 km along the Whangaehu River.
