Final Ascent: Episode 8: My Epic Adventure

The epic last leg of an epic journey: crossing the last few hundred metres to the peak.

A mountaineering crew set off from Mumbai to scale Shahi Kangri (6934 mt), a mighty peak in the eastern Karakoram range of the Himalayas. Fate and a series of circumstances have brought the team instead to Nya Kangri (6530 mt). Experience the thrill, heartbreak and adrenaline rush that is a mountain ascent through snow, ice, hazardous weather and terrain. This is the closest you will ever get to climbing a mountain peak from the comfort of your home.

My Epic Adventure is an 8-part webseries that follows the journey of a sheltered young urban lad and host of the series Rosh across the peaks of Himalayas. Accompanying him are seasoned and disciplined mountaineers Divyesh Muni, his wife Vineeta and their team. Rajesh Gadgil is a fellow climber who has been scaling mountains with Divyesh & Vineeta for 27 years. Joining them is Dinesh Koday, a cancer survivor, recently recovering from knee ligament surgery. The final member of the expedition is Ratnesh, a prolific climber making his comeback to mountaineering after 10 years. Together with a crew of dedicated sherpas and some sturdy steeds, they will explore the route to the eastern Karakoram mountain range, and attempt to scale the virgin peaks Shahi Kangri (6934 mts) and Nya Kangri (6530 mts).
