Description
Summary:Mountains are majestic, beautiful and awe-inspiring. They provoke both wonder and fear, because life at altitude is tough. Mountain dwellers must contend with the cold, thin air as well as dramatic changes in weather. Taking a different range in turn, these three films follow the animals who have made these wild places their home. How does a yak survive high up in the Himalayas? How does life change across the vast stretch of the Andes? And how do grizzly bears and cougars cope with the huge seasonal change of the Rockies? Beautiful and breathtaking, these films bring the incredible scale of the mountains to the screen. The Andes is the longest mountain range in the world and home to astonishing hidden worlds, extraordinary animals and remarkable people. A female puma and her three cubs hunt in the mountains of the frozen south. Spectacled bears search for water on scorched mountain forests, and the descendants of the Inca gather in an ancient ceremony to build a bridge made from woven grass. High in the cloud forest, a newly discovered shape-shifting frog baffles scientists with its superpowers and in the Atacama desert - the driest place in the world - strange reptiles battle for access to precious water. This is the mountain range of surprise and wonder.
