Moving Mountains: Episode 6: My Epic Adventure

The expedition team explores three routes to climb Shahi Kangri, realising this may be harder than they thought.

Divyesh & team successfully cross the river Shyok and set up base camp at the foot of the mighty Shahi Kangri in the Eastern Karakoram mountain range. After a pooja with the Sherpas at the base of the mountain, they set off to accomplish their mission. But as they begin to explore their route up to scale the peak, many obstacles crop up. The team starts to realise that this first ascent may be harder than even they had imagined.

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).
