Man Down: Episode 4: My Epic Adventure

Rosh plays a drinking game at high altitude, and has to pay the price.

Mountaineering teams usually have a strict no drinking policy while on expedition. But party animal Rosh has never gone long without a little 'juicy joy' going down his throat. While he manages to convince the assistant director to join him for a drink, the consequences are worse than he anticipated. Later in the day, the whole team decides to trek to the beautiful Shanti Stupa to offer their prayers before they set off on their actual mission: scaling the Himalayan peak of Shahi Kangri.

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).
