Earth’s Natural Wonders visits some of the most extraordinary places on Earth and tells the remarkable stories of people who live there. While truly spectacular, each location poses extreme challenges for those who call it home.

Among the stories told in the series:  a young Sherpa ropes a route across the notorious Khumbu Icefall in time for hundreds of foreign mountaineers who arrive for hunting season; fishermen near Zambia’s Victoria Falls brave crocodiles, elephants, and the risk of being swept to certain death to reach exotic and plentiful fishing pools at the Falls’ edge; and a father and son who brave killer bees and man-eating tigers to find prized honey in Bangladesh’s Sundarbands, the largest mangrove forest in the world.

Watch it tonight at 7pm on WGBX 44. More airings
