Ladakh, known for its beautiful snowy mountains and stunning blue waters, is also home to Indian Army’s Ladakh Scouts, fondly known as the ‘Snow Warriors’. This picturesque land is alive with stories of their bravery and sacrifice. To introduce these courageous sons of the soil to the world, discovery+, India’s first and leading aggregated real-life entertainment streaming app, is all set to launch one of the most visually spectacular shows this year, Ladakh Warriors: The Sons of the Soil, as it forays into original content made especially for the Indian audiences.

Shot in the stunning backdrop of rugged desert mountains, Ladakh Warriors: The Sons of the Soil is an exciting and immersive film that will give the heroes of mountain warfare the attention they deserve. Born with larger lungs and genetically conditioned to fight at heights of over 15,000ft, the young Ladakhi boys only dream of being the human shield to protect their country. It is a story of determination and love for the motherland. Narrated in Hindi by the Indian equestrian, actor and nature & wildlife enthusiast, Randeep Hooda, the show depicts the grueling training that the Snow Warriors go through, at one of the highest regimental centers in the world. Ladakh Warriors: The Sons of the Soil is streaming now on discovery+.

On lending his voice for the show in Hindi, Randeep Hooda said, “I have always been in awe of Ladakh’s beauty. However, associating with this show, I am now equally mesmerized by the stories of these warriors, who come with a determination towards their country and train in such extreme conditions only to be able to protect their land. It’s a great initiative by Discovery and I am glad to lend my voice and take this story to every corner of this country.”

Col. Sonam Wangchuk (Retd), Maha Vir Chakra awardee said, “Young Ladakhi boys come to join the Ladakh Scouts regiment with a desire to do something for their country. Physiologically, they are customized for the existing terrain and climatic conditions of this place and are irreplaceable as soldiers to deliver in extreme conditions of Ladakh. I am thankful to discovery+ for telling this story to the people of India, encouraging many young boys and girls to do something for their motherland.”

Issac John, Direct-to-Consumer Head, APAC – Discovery, said, “There was no other show better than Ladakh Warriors: The Sons of the Soil to launch discovery+ Originals. The show is a beautiful depiction of the spirit of Ladakh, its people and their loyalty towards their country. The show will provide the viewers unprecedented access to one of the world’s highest regimental centers and we’re delighted, that we are kicking discovery+ Originals with a show that will resonate with every Indian family. ”
