Sanjip Rai from Khotang triumphs, winning the fifth edition of the Himalaya Roadies. Rai, declared the show's winner during Monday's grand finale, receives a substantial reward—a cash prize of Rs 1 million and a Yamaha motorbike.
This marks Rai's third attempt, having faced elimination in the physical audition previously. Reflecting on his victory, Rai states, "I have taken this victory as the biggest achievement of my life," and encourages young people not to give up.
Originally aspiring to be a British Gurkha, Rai shifted to a music career, releasing four songs, including rap. Bishwa Magar claims the first runner-up spot in the competition.
In the final episode, held near Phewa Lake in Pokhara, finalists navigated a challenging ascent with logs and wheels. Rai's swift summit overtook Magar, securing his victory.
Himalaya TV's Executive Director, Shyam Kandel, and Yamaha Nepal's Managing Director, Bishnu Agarwal, graced the occasion, extending congratulations. Special wishes also pour in from Kirat Rai Yayokkha Japan, adding to the celebration of Rai's remarkable journey.
