Photo: Lake Mangamahoe Mt Egmont New Zealand

Lush greenery surrounds Lake Mangamahoe in Taranaki, New Zealand with Mt. Egmont peeking out behind the cloud cover in the background.

This incredible region that is home to Lake Mangamahoe in Taranaki, New Zealand covers a large area which is made up of commercial production forest, a stunning park and a wildlife habitat. The scenery is spectacular around Lake Mangamahoe and you have a beautiful view of Mt. Egmont in the backdrop from this location.

People can enjoy a picnic near Lake Mangamahoe, stroll along the walkways, mountain bike or travel on horseback but water activities are forbidden. The lake is the water supply for New Plymouth, New Zealand so swimming or boating on Lake Mangamahoe is disallowed and visitors must keep within the boundaries. Fly fishing is the only sport that is permitted in the lake but one must carry a valid fishing license in order to do so.

The mountain bike trails around the lake are suitable for beginners as well as experienced bikers and the total walking distance around the lake amongst the wilderness is about six kilometers. ... continue below the picture...

... This trail is not recommended for everyone as some sections are extremely uneven making the adventure relatively challenging.

Lake Mangamahoe was first created in 1931 primarily for New Plymouth's water source and after building a dam across the valley and new plants were erected, this beautiful area was established. The added attraction of Mt. Egmont, the second highest volcanic mountain in New Zealand, is a bonus to the area making Lake Mangamahoe well worth a visit.
