Tonight, travel the length of the Western Ghats, a spine of mountains that lay claim to being one of the most bio-diverse places in the world.

Here, tropical rainforests thrive and explode with life, and on the forest floor the largest venomous snake on the planet rules supreme – the mighty king cobra.

An innate respect for the natural world is upheld by the cultures that have survived in the mountains for thousands of years. Many Indians would rather abandon their homes than harm a king cobra sleeping inside.

Find out why this river is a lifeline to an array of wild animals, including India’s rare one-horned rhinoceros, as well as eight per cent of the world’s population. Head high into The Himalayas to find out how its hostile terrain, powerful winds and sub-zero temperatures support one of the largest and most diverse collections of creatures on the planet, including man. Then travel into a lost world, home to head hunting tribes, tiger-infested forests, unclimbed mountains and pristine rivers.

Visit India’s Thar Desert and discover how this harsh environment supports both humans, and some of the toughest and rarest creatures on Earth. Finally, journey into the Western Ghats, a spine of mountains stretching for a thousand miles along India’s west coast, thought to be one of the most bio-diverse places in the world. On one side, tropical rainforests thrive, and explode with life, including the endangered lion-tailed macaque, whilst on the eastern side, tigers and wild dogs compete for prey in its dry forests.
