How trekking renewed a father son-duet?
Through this story one can find various motives to trek, this seems glowing relationships is one of them. Sanjay C, the trekking guide of Skyline Treks, hiking club, just now made a trip to Everest and note down a charming story. This story was about how a father and son, who hardly ever spoke to each other, set out on an Everest panorama trek and tied like never before. Here the story goes,
2 week before, our one former client named Fabio, who made Annapurna circuit trek with Skyline treks in 2003 once joined with us to make Everest view trek for 7 days. He is a very active business man, work full-time jobs. He has a 16 years old son named Alex, and he has one sibling. Throughout the trek and in our exchange, by chance I wanted to know about his happiness. That’s when he told me an interesting story. It all happened when the father knew that there was a void being produced between him and his son. Since the father was busy at business every day, the son found himself so lonely and there was no more of that much suitable father son unification.
That’s just after the father invent of a superb idea- trek to Nepal Himalayas. Ever since the father couldn’t go away from his business and leave together, but he determined to take his son with him on a 7 days trek. They packed their bags, laden their cameras and evidently the glad son was dreaming about the trip with excitement. The prime concern for both father and son was about how they would bond. By cause of the father busy life which had brought so much of a contact break between father and son, resulting the son uncertain even to speak to his father. The father sensed that this Nepal Everest trek would either get them both closer together or make them glide more afar. However, on a positive note both father and son left for the Everest view trek. Even though I felt like to read the story from the father himself, over the next 7 days I met both, father and his son end-to-end of the wonderful Everest view trek.
As we sat on the plane from Kathmandu towards Lukla the father was just only thinking how to break the ice between him and his son. After the 45 minutes of air traveling, we touched down at Lukla airport and from here the real taste of trekking break out. In the hiking the father slowly started asking his son about his interest, entertainment, school and friends. Firstly, the son was somewhat doubtful and answered reluctantly. But bit by bit the talk changed into a sweet, energetic converse.
The son voiced about his interest, school, friends and teachers. I discovered that the father was feeling uneasy to appreciate that he even didn’t know his son best friend name and as well his rank in the class. Nonetheless, the son was partly hesitant to request his father any questionings on his personal life.
However, for that glacier to melt it would take a while. After they reached their first destination at Phakding the both twosome guy were nearly getting close with each other but till some kind of hitch stayed. At Phakding the son experienced a sense of achievement when he made his day fist journey with no trouble. The following day from Phakding (2600 meters) to Namche Bazaar (3,440 meters) and up to Tengboche (3,876 meters), the final landing point to view Mt. Everest ‘Roof of the world’ was fairly tricky. The father said that looking at his young and inexperienced son battling his confines to win over that top of Namche was an experience in itself.
He could see his lenient legs and feet fighting to climb up. After Namche, that is when the son pushed ahead towards Tengboche and guarded his son hand. Through that sense of guarantee and assurance given by his father, the son climbed up the 3,876 meters of Tengboche hill wherein his self-belief and enthusiasm developing every minute. The father said that, he may have been supporting his son hand, but it was truly he, who sensed encouraged, because in reality, the father experienced that bond with his son. And he wouldn’t like to leave behind. The son accustomed to the fresh atmosphere and enjoyed every bit of the Everest view trek which astounded his father.
By this trek the father get know how benevolence is his son, he filled his father water bottle nearby the stream to clean the bedding. It was on this Nepal Everest trek that the father knew what he had been letting go on.
The father realized that he had gained his main concerns all mistaken until now and pledged to himself to build stability between business and own life. The son himself let know me that he adored being with his father. He was immensely impressed with his father performance throughout the trip. The son also added that how his father was energetic even in the age of 57 and climbed before any other trekkers else. Besides, the expression of the son revealed that he could see it in his eyes that he observes his father as his role model.
That’s when the Everest trek come to an end the father said to me that it was one of his best judgments to take his son on such thrilling trek in Nepal. After making Everest panorama trek with his son, the father decided to send his daughter on a trek with his brother once. This summer in April when she comes over her holidays from hostel, the father is planning to surprise her with a gift as trekking in Nepal, the gift which is coated in the nice-smelling of snowy mountains. Thereby, every parent, we often underrates the prospective of our kids.
We should be caring about them and hardly ever do we endeavor out with them. The true life lessons are learnt by exposing to nature not in the calm of the house. So let your children’s explore experiment and overcome their own weakness through Mother Nature. Gift your children something new and more real, gift them an advantageous trek in Nepal which bestow them deep-seated memories made in the mountains that are eternal.
