The two-year-old boy climbed to Everest Base Camp

The couple rented their house and quit their jobs to spend a year traveling the world with their son.

Breaking the record previously held by a 4-year-old child, little Carter Dallas, just 2 years old, climbed to the base camp of Mount Everest with his parents on October 25.

The doctors considered this child a miracle, because the physical examination showed that Carter was in perfect health after the ascent, when in fact he was on his father’s back.

He resisted better than his parents. They felt uncomfortable with the height, but their child seemed unaffected.

According to a study in which more than 100 doctors collaborated, children under 2 years of age should not exceed 2,000 meters in altitude. 5,364 meters above sea level is the location of Everest Base Camp, which is not limited to Carter.

However, there is an explanation for how the boy was able to withstand the cold so long at such a young age. His parents, Ross and Jade, practiced breathing and ice baths with him to get used to the low temperatures.

“Some people say it’s brilliant, others say it’s completely irresponsible,” said Tim Mosedale, the tenth Briton to summit Everest from both sides, when he learned of the record by Carter Dallas.

Adventures around the world

Climbing the base camp of Mount Everest is one of the adventures that the family, from Scotland, is prepared to do. In August 2023, the couple rented their house and quit their jobs to spend a year traveling the world with their son.

In all the months of the trip they visited India, Sri Lanka, Maldives, Nepal, Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore and Cambodia.

“We love that Carter is exposed to different cultures and plays with all the kids in small towns, it really opens his mind,” said his 35-year-old father, Ross.

“He’s learning the language,” he said.

According to Ross, the boy has developed a taste for exotic foods and enjoys eating fish curry in the Maldives and chicken feet in Malaysia, and even crocodile, although his favorite dish is pad Thai.

Together they visited an elephant orphanage, swam with sharks and saw the Taj Mahal.

“We hope we can inspire other people to come out and see the real world,” the family said.
