New Zealand: Mt Taranaki

Mount Taranaki, or Mount Egmont, is an active but quiescent strato volcano in the Taranaki region on the west coast of New Zealand's North Island. The 2518-metre-high mountain is one of the most symmetrical volcanic cones in the world. There is a secondary cone, Fanthams Peak (Māori: Panitahi), 1,966 metres (6,450 ft), on the south side.

Thanks to my friend Mr Chacko who was visiting the island.
