The high one, Mount Mac Kinley in North America has the highest base-to-summit elevation of any mound on Earth, rising 18,000 feet from its base.

Mount Kilimanjaro (2/4)
This film will bring together a rift geologist, a zoologist and a local mountain guide, a climber and glaciologist : we follow their research individually, capture the many faces of the Kilimanjaro, flora, glaciers, dramatic landscape, reveal how quickly kili's glaciers are receding, the second fastest disappearing glacial mass on Earth.

Mount Windson massif (3/4)
Rising up in the middle of this ice, 600 miles from the South Pole is Windson massif, the most remote of the fours summits of the series. At a height of 16,067 feet, it looms over the West Antarctic Ice Sheet, an Island in an unstable frozen sea.
