Taranaki has so 

Mountain climbing

Mt Taranaki offers many different climbing opportunities in any season, and you won’t be disappointed by its majestic offerings.

From abseiling to traditional forms of climbing Mt Taranaki is sure to satisfy the most avid mountain climber.


Taranaki gets overshadowed by a giant Maunga, Mount Taranaki (Mt Taranaki is formally known as Mt Egmont).

The second most symmetrical mountain in the world after Japans mt Fujiama.

Although Mt Taranaki has a ski field it’s no Whakapapa, Coronet Peak or Cardrona. But, its a stone throw away from central NP.

Mt Taranaki is available for you to enjoy in the winter or summer.
