Thurs, 5/18: The Himalayas (Nat Geo)
Sure, everyone knows about the world’s most famous climbing destination, Everest, but The Himalayas are so much more than one singular mountain. The fact is the mountain range stretches 1,500 miles across Asia with a number of peaks that tower over five miles high. This documentary program goes in-depth, starting with Pakistan in winter and onto a journey from west to east through the seasons. Enjoy footage of the area’s diverse wildlife, including hot springs snakes, high-altitude spiders, and predatory golden eagles.
