Mt Taranaki-breath taking, painful and sore the next day

Mt Taranaki, New Zealand, is in the national park of Egmont; south of New Plymouth (if you stay here try the Ducks and Drakes it was the best hostel so far). So the real question is it worth visiting?

Hopefully the picture I took near the top will answer that. For those who want a description Mt Taranaki is beautiful, breath taking, exhausting, frustrating, adrenaline inducing, remote, has a gentle calmness, a pain to go down and a bloody awesome day.

Just a word of warning have a good pair of mountain boots, be prepared and if you get out of breath going up a hill don’t to this (the gradient at some points are insane).
