A city boy, a cancer survivor and a team of expert mountaineers scale the virgin peaks of Himalayas in a new web series called My Epic Adventure.
What happens when a metro-bred youngster, someone who’s grown up with all the comforts of city life, suddenly decides to climb a mountain that’s never been climbed before?
This is the story of Roshmin Mehandru AKA Rosh, a quintessential Bandra boy who has embarked on the biggest adventure of his life till now–A First Ascent (the first successful, documented attainment of the top of a mountain).
Rosh commenced his journey early this winter to conquer one of the virgin, unexplored mountains of the Himalayas. And his experience has been captured in a new travel web series by 101India, My Epic Adventure.
The expedition has been organised by veteran mountaineers Divyesh Muni (who has successfully climbed 32 peaks) and his wife Vineeta Muni (one of the first women to have walked along the entire length of the Himalayas, in 198 days), along with fellow climber Rajesh Gadgil (veteran of over 25 Himalayan expeditions), cancer survivor Dinesh Koday, and Ratnesh.
This eight-part web series will show Rosh and his team’s epic 45-day expedition to Mount Shahi Kangri, which is surrounded by the ‘River of Death’ (Shyok river) at the base; this mountain stands at a humongous 7000 meter, the top 250 m of which is pure blue ice. Not surprisingly then, this peak is considered to be one of the most difficult terrains to climb, especially for a rookie mountaineer.
