Photo: Beautiful Mount Taranaki Coastal Scenery West Coast North Island NZ

Dusk paints an orange glow over beautiful Mount Taranaki or Mount Egmont, which sits at the heart of Egmont National Park and dominates the coastal scenery of North Island, West Coast, New Zealand.

Mount Taranaki or Mount Egmont (it's official dual name) is an active volcano currently at rest, seated at the heart of Mount Egmont National Park on the west coast of the North Island of New Zealand. Its many "moods" dictate the rapidly changing weather in the region. This photo depicts the mountain at sunset, in beautiful warm repose as dusk bathes it in sublime orange glows.

The classically-shaped volcano measures 2518 metres and has dominated the coastal scenery and nature of the Taranaki region for over an estimated 70,000 years when the mountain was formed by its first eruption. ... continue below the picture...

... The mountain last erupted in 1775. Many scientists believe that activity there is long overdue and predict that the mountain may begin to rumble again at any time.

Mount Taranaki's potential volatility is matched in juxtaposition by its present undeniable splendor and ecological importance to locals and tourists alike, it is definitely a New Zealand tourist attraction.

Aesthetically, it is among the world's most symmetrical volcanic cones.
Surrounded by a temperate nationally protected rainforest, Mount Taranaki's snow capped peaks provide ample opportunities for some of the most exciting ice climbing, snow trekking and skiing available on New Zealand's North Island. Lower elevations afford majestic terrain of lush green vegetation for climbers, hikers, bird watchers, photographers and nature lovers in general to enjoy.

Egmont National Park's Visitor's Centre provides information on over 300 km of walking trails and popular viewing vistas, as well as the many lakes that are fed by the mountain. Local professional tour guides are also available to accompany visitors along the tracks and assist in the event of weather changes.
