Documentary about Mt. Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest mountain. The mountain is sacred to the Chagga people who farm its slopes and a mecca for tourists who come to climb the mountain's snow-peaked summit. The program follows a group of English trekkers as they make a grueling ascent up Kilimanjaro and explains how the mountain was formed. It also explores the unique ecology of the surrounding forest and details how the Chagga developed a form of green-garden agriculture that enabled them to harvest an abundance of food while living in harmony with the land.
