My Encounter With The Buddhist Monks Of Ladakh

A spiritual journey to one of the largest Buddhist monasteries in India.

The host of #MyEpicAdventure, Rosh, discovers he may have had an alternate purpose for being in the mountains: The Rizong Monastery in the Indus valley. Established in 1831, it is one of the largest Buddhist monasteries in the country. Meeting with the monks and their pupils, Rosh finds himself asking deeper questions about the meaning of life, and how to be happy.

Rosh set off on a journey to scale an unclimbed Himalayan peak - Shahi Kangri, standing tall at 6934 mt. Watch the adventure series My Epic Adventure here:
