DID YOU KNOW: The Longest Place Name In The World Today

Did you know where is the longest place name in the world?
I know where it is. The place called North Hill, New Zealand which is largely populated by Native Maori have a specific name for certain hill. It being revealed that this hill name consists of 85 letters and being announced as the longest place name still in use on earth.

Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateaturipukakapikimaungahoronukupokaiwhenuakitanatahu is the Maori name for the hill, or Taumata for short.

In the language of the native Maoris who live in New Zealand, the hill's name means ''the hill where Tamatea, the man with the big knee who slid, climbed. and swallowed mountains, played his flute for his lady love".

Believe it or not? Belive It!!!!!
