Even when most of us are sitting indoors amid the COVID-19 pandemic, it is heartening to listen to tales of adventurous travels from various parts of the globe.

A three-year-old British boy, Jackson, and his seven-year-old sister Freya have caught the imagination of the world with their adventure trip.

Jackson and Freya reached the summit of the 10,000-ft mountain, Piz Badile, situated along the border between Switzerland and Italy in July. Their achievement is making headlines across the globe.

They were accompanied by their parents Leo and Jessica.

During the journey, they spent one night in an Alpine hut and two nights at temporary shelters.

With this trip, both the children have entered the record books. Jackson, who was helped by his mother, became the youngest person to reach the summit of such a tall mountain.

His sister too set a record as she became the youngest person to climb the mountain without any assistance.

A post on her children's achievement by the mother has gone viral on social media.

Jessica had to carry Jackson for the most part of the journey. And therefore, it was left for Leo to carry all the camping equipment and food for the entire family.

Though the family had travelled to the UK and various parts of Europe earlier, Leo has been planning more daring trips as his children grow older.

They are now preparing for days-long trekking across Montenegro.
