While this entire route is fill with incredible views, walks, lakes and ski fields, it can be tough to choose which one to do if you have limited time!
This is a slight detour from normal on the blog as this walk took place half way around the world from where I normally walk – in Italy! And not only that, it took place on a different surface than normal – snow.
If you asked a child to draw a mountain, I’m pretty sure they’d produce an image that looked very similar to Mt Taranaki. As you drive into Taranaki, the Maunga draws you in, and seeing her in winter, her top covered in snow, is just glorious.
