Photograph Lake Mangamahoe

Originally added by Tiffany Young

Beautiful lake? Epic mountain? It's a twofer!

Want to see Mt Taranaki from a different angle? Get to Lake Mangamahoe during a sunset and see the epic colors take over Taranaki's peaks!

Just about a 10 minutes drive on SH 3 south from town - take a left on Kent Rd onto a gravel road. There are a few of parking lots around the lake and they will all take you onto the loop track through native bush around the lake. I unfortunately, didn't have time for it, but I heard it's beautiful! I also heard it's steep at some parts. (You've been warned.)

Photographers - get stoked about this postcard landscape. Find swans, mountain, flora. Whether you're looking for an adventure or just a beautiful location to hang out, Lake Mangamahoe is a great choice away from the city. Bring a book, a picnic, or some friends... just sit back and enjoy the view.
