Buckle your virtual seat belt this summer as Arizona PBS takes you to some of the most remarkable destinations around the world in this year’s PBS Summer of Adventure.
On Wednesdays at 8 p.m., beginning July 11, “Kingdoms of the Sky” introduces the extraordinary animals and remarkable people who make their homes in the iconic mountain ranges of the world.
The Rockies stretch 3,000 miles and is one of the great mountain ranges of the world. It is home to cougar, wolverine, wolves, and grizzly. Daredevil wingsuit fliers jump from high peaks and Native Americans compete in breakneck horse races.
The extraordinary wildlife and people of the Himalaya – the highest mountain range on earth. Bizarre snub-nosed monkeys live in frozen forests. Tibetan monks perform ancient rituals high in the mountains whilst snow leopards prowl the mountain sides.
The extraordinary wildlife and people of the Andes. Pumas hunt guanaco, shape-shifting frogs hide in remote cloud forests and the descendants of Inca build bridges of grass. The world’s driest desert, huge salt lakes and spectacular peaks are all found in the world’s longest mountain range.
