Explore best adventure destinations that Asia has to offer with Discovery’s Expedition Asia with Ryan Pyle

Explore best adventure destinations that Asia has to offer with Discovery’s Expedition Asia with Ryan Pyle

Kolkata, May 18 (UNI) Join adventurer Ryan Pyle as he spends months exploring the best adventure trekking destinations in Asia.

Ryan’s human-powered adventures are always inspiring as he proves that anyone can

get out and explore the great unknown. Expedition Asia is a modern television series that

is focused equally on adventure, exploration and cultural education.

Join Ryan Pyle has he unplugs from his urban life and heads out to explore the world in an

exciting new 10-part series ‘Expedition Asia with Ryan Pyle’, which premieres on May 25 at

8:00 pm on Discovery, Discovery HD and newly launched app Discovery Plus.

Ryan Pyle’s Expedition Asia explores Asia’s best adventure trekking destinations such as

Mount Apo in Philippines, Badain Jaran Desert in China, Bali in Indonesia, Khuiten Peak in

Mongolia, Holy Ridge in Taiwan, Maclehose Trail in Hong Kong, The Turkestan Circle in

Kyrgystan, Mount Kinabalu in Malaysia, Northern Thailand Trail and finally Jagatsukh Peak

near Manali in India.

Ryan and his team arrive in Manali, the hub of adventure sports in India. After a short

acclimatization and enjoying some local food and culture it’s time to head out to explore

the eastern Himalayan range. The early stages of the journey are a gentle stroll through

forested mountains just outside of Manali, but soon things become incredibly difficult with

challenging weather, snowstorms and Mother Nature puts their entire journey in India at risk.

“Going on an adventure is all about adapting to the change; the most important thing about

an adventure is to adapt to the changes and the unknown. One needs to understand and

respect the world around and put yourself right in the natural world. That’s why on my TV

show, I am never the main host, I’m always the second host. Nature is the first host,” said

Ryan Pyle.

“The Indian experience was exhilarating as we landed in the beautiful Manali with people

busy with Dussehra celebrations. The trek from Manali to Jagatsukh was breath-taking and

helped me imbibe the beautiful Himalaya’s. Beyond the physical location, the hospitality of

India is what enamours you. I’ve spent a lot of my professional career filming in India, either

on the back of my motorcycle or on my feet exploring the magical nature that exists in the

country. My heart goes out to my friends in India as we globally deal with this challenging

viral pandemic. I hope when we can rise up and defeat this virus, I’ll be back in India

continuing to explore," Pyle added.
