Overview

Without any human influence, nature has created extraordinary wonders—from majestic mountains and bubbling volcanoes to amazing plants and animals. These wonders are found across all the continents and oceans of this planet. In a tour of the seven greatest wonders of Asia and the Middle East, one of the first wonders we'll see is Mount Everest, between Nepal and Tibet. It's the tallest mountain on Earth. We'll also visit the Chocolate Hills in the Philippines. In the dry season, these hills look like a field of chocolate kisses. The salty Dead Sea sits between Israel and Jordan. If you were to swim in this sea, you wouldn't even sink. What other natural wonders do Asia and the Middle East hold? To find out, we'll explore dripping wet rain forests, a spooky desert, and strange rock formations in fascinating detail.
