I went on this scenic trek at the Tongariro National Park, North Island, New Zealand, billed as New Zealand's best one-day walk. If you are thinking of going on the walk, I suggest you take the earliest start as there can be anywhere from 50 to 400 people on the walk in a day, depending on the season. (More photo albums can be found here.)

You can just about make out the other trekkers strung out on the track below and behind the woman (see centre of photo).
