Umurnya memang baru 9 tahun, tapi keberaniannya mendaki gunung patut diacungi jempol! Tyler Amstrong berhasil menjadi pendaki termuda gunung Aconcagua, yang merupakan gunung tertinggi di benua Amerika. Gunung Aconcagua berada di pegunungan Andes, Argentina. Tingginya sekitar 6.962 meter dari permukaan laut.

He is just 9 years old, but his courage in climbing the mountain deserves thumbs up! Tyler Armstrong became the youngest climber to take on Mount Aconcagua, the highest mountain in the American continent. Mount Aconcagua is a part of the Andes Mountains in Argentina. The mountain peaks at 6,962 meters above sea level.

Tyler mendaki gunung Aconcagua bersama ayahnya, Kevin Amstrong, pada hari Natal lalu. “Setiap anak bisa mendaki gunung ini dan berusaha melakukannya,” ujar Tyler kepada BBC. Sebagai persiapan mendaki, Tyler melakukan berbagai latihan fisik, sebanyak 2 kali dalam sehari selama 6 bulan.

Tyler climbed Mount Aconcagua with his dad, Kevin Armstrong, on Christmas day. “Every child can climb this mountain as long as they are willing,” Tyler told BBC. To prepare the climb, Tyler did various physical activities, twice a day for six months.

Prestasi ini membuat Tyler berhasil mematahkan rekor pendaki termuda gunung Aconcagua sebelumnya, atas nama Mattew Moniz (10 tahun). Ternyata, bukan kali ini Tyler mendaki gunung. Sebelumnya, ia mampu mendaki gunung Kilimanjaro, yang merupakan gunung tertinggi di benua Afrika.

This achievement allows Tyler to break the youngest Mount Aconcagua climber, which was previously held by Matthew Moniz (10 years old). Apparently, this is not Tyler’s first climb. Previously, he was able to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, which is the highest mountain in the African continent.

Tujuan Tyler mendaki gunung adalah untuk menggalang dana bagi penelitian penyakit gangguan pada otot (muscular dystrophy). Wah, kira-kira gunung mana lagi yang akan didaki Tyler ya?

Tyler’s purpose to climb the mountains is to raise funds for the medical research of a muscle illness called muscular dystrophy. Wow, we wonder, what other mountains would Tyler climb?
