“The Emerald Lakes” (GC24VY3) reveals the rugged beauty of New Zealand’s Tongariro National Park. Geocachers hike to the top of Mt. Tongariro to discover the three picturesque lakes. The lakes themselves began as craters formed during volcanic activity.
There are three requirements to claim the EarthCache. Geocachers must use their GPS units to record the elevation of each of the three lakes, describe the color of the lakes and take a photo of the lakes showing their GPS device at the published coordinates.
More than a dozen geocachers have already logged a smiley on the cache.
