Episode Information

This exciting new adventure travel program takes four young professionals, ranging from an office manager to a Taiwanese pop star on amazing journeys to experience some of Asia’s most exotic terrain through adventure sports.

After a brief lesson in the basics of rock climbing from some of Korea’s most respected alpinists, Terrence and Sandra are challenged to ascend the sheer 811m face of Insubong Peak. Although requiring endurance to reach, the peak proves to be an even more daunting challenge mentally, testing the absolute limit for Sandra and Terrence!

Then, after reaching beautiful remote Mergui, a grouping of 800 islands inhabited only by nomadic sea gypsies, Paveena and Fred are treated to an inside look at the local culture where fishing is conducted without lines, nets or hooks. Fred is a novice diver, and the challenge that awaits is a bit scary: massive schools of Baracuda, and cave diving with sharks! As if that wasn’t excitement enough, an emergency rescue ensues on the last dive!
