Taupo

Taupo is located at the center of the North Island on the shores of the huge Lake Taupo. The name Taupo comes from Māori Taupō-nui-a-Tia. Literally translated, it means “The great cloak of Tia” where Tia is the name of the discoverer of the lake. The main attraction in Taupo other than the lake is the 18 kilometer Tangariro Crossing, which has been dubbed as the most beautiful one day walk in the world.
