Poetic, yet informative, this educational documentary show draws connections between mountains and existence that they inspire. In Mountains: Gateways to the Heavens, the mystical nature of mountains is explored. Long the source of awe and wonder, this show looks deeply into the importance of mountain habitats to life on Earth.

Parents will enjoy the facts available here that they may not have considered before: the weather patterns that make up climates, the different types of mountain ranges, and the age of the ranges in one's own region. Kids will stay engaged with the quickly-paced visual content that explains geological and animal development. With a beautifully written narrative and stunning photography, this nature documentary is worth a view.
