Plan B - Nya Kangri: Episode 7: My Epic Adventure

This expedition team hops mountains in the Himalayas like you would hop bars in the city.

Divyesh and team explore several routes up the western face of Shahi Kangri, a 6934 mt high peak in the eastern Karakoram range. When it becomes clear that this will not be possible, the team sets their eyes on another peak: Nya Kangri. Standing at an imposing 6530 mt, Nya Kangri is an old friend to this team. They have tried scaling this peak once before in 2008, without success. Today, they get their second chance.

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).
