Program Description

Rising straight from the parched plains of east Africa are colossal ice-capped mountains. Towering up to four miles high, these volcanic peaks are a fascinating world of freezing nights, scorching days, and smoking summits. This program travels through an equatorial blizzard on Mt. Kenya, a cloud forest in the Aberdares, and the majestic crown of Kilimanjaro, where nature flaunts its extraordinary power to survive, adapt and even flourish in these remote realms.
