Horohoro, New Zealand
Horohoro is a rural farming community 15 kilometres (9.3 mi) south-west of Rotorua, New Zealand. Horohoro is a prominent landmark in the Rotorua area: a flat topped mountain with perpendicular cliffs. It is the traditional home of Ngāti Kea Ngāti Tuara whose ancestors related an incident in which Kahumatamomoe, a Te Arawa chief, washed his hands in a stream at the northern end of the Horohoro mountain. Hence the full name of the mountain is Te Horohoroinga o ngā ringa o Kahumatamomoe.
