The Indian experience

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."

Sai Abishek, Director–Content, Factual & Lifestyle Entertainment – South Asia, Discovery said, “Discovery India has always been at the forefront of bringing the best explorers from around the world who discover the world from fresh perspectives bringing new insights in the modern day adventure travel. A very interesting aspect of Expedition Asia with Ryan Pyle is that Ryan effortlessly lets nature do the talking thereby taking the audience on a journey that they not only get to see but also, experience. At a time like this, when we’re practicing social distancing, a show that allows viewers to explore this world and live the adventure right from where they are, safe and sound at home, is definitely going to be well liked and admired by the audiences.”

Join Ryan Pyle as he unplugs from his urban life and heads out to explore the world. Tune in to EXPEDITION ASIA WITH RYAN PYLE, premiering on 25th May at 8 PM, only on Discovery, Discovery HD and Discovery Plus app.
