Lord of the Rings: Mt Doom

* LotR: The Fellowship of the Ring * LotR: The Two Towers * LotR: The Return of the King

Mt Doom as portrayed in the movie was a computer generated graphic, but as New Zealand has no lack of real existing volcanoes, the artists could pick and choose for their inspiration. Mt Ngauruhoe is easily the most Mt Doom like of the grand volcanoes on the New Zealand Central Plateau. Scenes of Frodo's and Sam's journey through Mordor were shot on nearby Whakapapa Ski Field, and around the slopes of Mt Ruapehu, another of the three great volcanoes which make up Tongariro National Park.
