The Ruapehu Crater Lake is seen here on 4 March 2007 from the N, looking towards the tephra dam that failed on the 18th, resulting in 11% of the water draining through lahars down the Whangaehu valley on the E flank and down the N flank. The water temperatures fluctuate through time with geothermal activity below the lake.
