PHOTO JOURNEY of Mount Taranaki, New Zealand by Bharat Sharma

After wonderful Photo Journeys like 'Breathtaking helicopter flights exposing the magnificent views of the pristine alpine environment in the AorakiMount Cook World Heritage Park - By BHARAT SHARMA' and 'Bay Of Islands', here is another one from Mount Taranaki, which is again one of the main places in New Zealand to visit. Let's check out this lastest Photo Journey from Bharat's Travelling Camera...Mount Taranaki or Mount Egmont is an active but quiescent strato volcano in the Taranaki region of west coast of New Zealand's North Island. Although the mountain is more commonly referred to as Taranaki it has two names under the alternative names policy of the New Zealand Geographic Board.The 2520 meters high mountain is one of the most symmetrical volcanic cones in the world. There is a secondary cone.... Because of its resemblance to Mount Fuji, Taranaki provided the backdrop for the movie The Last Samurai. (Courtney - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mount_Taranaki)Here is a link which tells very well about the activities one can plan while in Mount Tarnaki - http://www.taranaki.info/visit/content.php/page/taranaki-s-top-50-must-do-experiencesThis mountain is a source of more than 49 rivers and water-streams...It's a botanically unique area containing a wide variety of vegetation from sub-tropical semi-coastal forests in the Kaitake Ranges through to sub-alpine herb fields...Many bird species can also be found in the forests surrounding the mountain...Taranaki issues a challenge that some who are tempted to climb... In summers, a climb to the summit requires a day approximately... and a good level of fitness is something that is required... However, the mountain sits close to the Tasman Sea and is subject to rapid and violent weather changes. Many who attempt the climb are less than adequately equipped. A combination of these factors has meant that Egmont has seen more climbing fatalities than any other mountain in New Zealand.

Check out http://www.newzealand.com/int/article/national-parks-egmont/ for more details.A shot take on sea side... Stone standing out brilliantly through curved sand...Water movement over this sand has given it a dramatic texture and helped in overall composition of this photograph...There are three roads leading part-way up the mountain. The highest is to East Egmont plateau, with a viewing platform and parking facilities for the ski-field. It lies at the transition between sub-alpine scrub and alpine herb fields.Here ends the journey to Mount Taranaki by Bharat Sharma

Let's check out this lastest Photo Journey from Bharat's Travelling Camera...Mount Taranaki or Mount Egmont is an active but quiescent strato volcano in the Taranaki region of west coast of New Zealand's North Island. Although the mountain is more commonly referred to as Taranaki it has two names under the alternative names policy of the New Zealand Geographic Board.The 2520 meters high mountain is one of the most symmetrical volcanic cones in the world. There is a secondary cone.... Because of its resemblance to Mount Fuji, Taranaki provided the backdrop for the movie The Last Samurai.
