Nigel travels among the peaks of Yunnan to meet a host of peculiar creatures.

The black snub-nose monkey lives at higher altitudes than any other primate except humans, the exquisite Fea's viper is a missing link in the snake world, while tree shrews, our distant ancestors, live in the peaks above Kunming, Yunnan's capital city.

There'll also be red pandas, giant salamanders as long as Nigel is tall, and rare green peacocks, the inspiration for China's famous Peacock Dance.

All in all, it's the journey of a lifetime.
