Rising above the clouds, the 2518 m summit of this dormant volcano offers spectacular views to those who make the challenging climb to its peak. Mount Taranaki stands in majestic isolation over the region it commands. Few volcanoes in the world can match its symmetry, which coupled with its bush clad backdrop and snow covered peak, forms the mesmerising focus of the Taranaki landscape. Get ready to sweat! A climb to the summit of Mount Taranaki is definitely not for the faint-hearted. Rising above the clouds, the summit should be attempted by experienced trekkers with the appropriate equipment.
