The 2518-metre-high mountain is one of the most symmetrical volcanic cones in the world. A secondary cone, Fanthams Peak (1966 m), is on the south side.
Mt Taranaki (aka Mt Egmont) in geological terms is young, having commenced activity approximately 135,000 years ago. The most recent volcanic activity was the production of a lava dome in the crater and its collapse down the side of the mountain in the 1850s or 1860s.
The price is for the helicopter to do the tour. It seats a maximum of 4 passengers, so up to 4 people can go for this cost.
