New Zealand, we all know is a very beautiful country. It’s basically an island country and when we talk of island’s, we mean sea, hills etc. On the Southern Hawk’s Bay of New Zealand there is a hill which is famous for many things but there is something interesting that you need to know. It has an incredibly long name!
The hill was explored by Tamatea-pōkai-whenua
305 metres high
Taumata. The nick name is given by locals for the ease of conversation.
Longest Hill Name:
Yes, that’s right, this is the name of the hill and it is the longest name of a place among all the English-speaking country. This name is in Maori Language and its rough translation is like:
“The summit where Tamatea, the man with the big knees, the climber of mountains, the land-swallower who travelled about, played his nose flute to his loved one“.
