Having been to the Taranaki region of New Zealand a number of times I had always wanted to climb it. This is the largest mountain I have ever walked up. We had to start at 7am as it Mount Taranaki is 2518 metres above sea level. There was very low cloud when starting out and we couldn’t see the summit but we hoped it would clear up and as you can see it did. I’ve shared a photo from the main road which shows the iconic shape with snow at the top, which you can’t see in this photo.
