"I climb onto the cablecar and it whisks me up the mountain. It is quite a contrast in temperature as I move from the fiery lava of Ta-Koro to the snowy clime of Ko-Wahi."

The Tren Krom Break, also called simply Tren Krom,[2] was a lava river on the border between Ta-Wahi and Ko-Wahi, famous for its Ignalu Lava Surfing competitions.

The Tren Krom Break came into being when the Great Spirit Mata Nui's camouflage system was accidentally activated during the Great Cataclysm, creating the island of Mata Nui.[3] It was named after the legendary Tren Krom by Toa Metru Vakama while the Toa arrived on the island to find a refuge for the Matoran of Metru Nui.[citation needed]

During Makuta Teridax's assault on the Matoran, the Ta-Koro Guard had an outpost called the Tren Krom Redoubt,[4] which kept contact with the North March.[5] However, the outpost eventually fell to infected Rahi,[4] and the Ta-Koro Guard lost contact with the North March shortly afterward.[5]

The Ta-Wahi side of the cable car route

The Tren Krom Break was the site of Ignalu Lava Surfing competitions. Lava Farmers also worked here, farming heat for Ta-Koro.[6] When the infected Rahi overran the Tren Krom Break, the lava farms were off-limits, considered too dangerous for Ta-Matoran to return to work.[4]

The two sides of the Break were connected by a Cable Car, a transportation device used by the Guard and Sanctum Guard. The Cable Car spanned the Break, with one side in Ta-Wahi at the North March, and the other in Ko-Wahi at an area of Mount Ihu. At the North March side, a Ta-Koro Guard member was stationed, who allowed only those possessing an Ensign to utilize the transport. The wandering Av-Matoran Takua used the Cable Car to travel from Ta-Wahi to Ko-Wahi.[5]

The Tren Krom Break was later cleared by the reawakened Bohrok swarms[citation needed: MGttU?] and completely obliterated when the Great Spirit Mata Nui reawakened.[7]
