Tzou Ze Gang, an 8-year-old boy from Taiwan spent two-days hiking the tallest mountain in Taiwan, the Jade Mountain (Yu Shan).

The boy reached the peak of the mountain with a portrait of his mother, who passed away last year, in his bag pack.

He was accompanied by his father, Pin Wei Gang and two other family friends on the two day expedition, from 18 to 20 August.

His father wrote on his Facebook page that Tzou was only four-years-old when his mother told him a story about the Jade Mountain. Since then, he was determined to climb the mountain with her.

Unfortunately, she had to undergo leg surgery which halted their dreams of hiking the mountain together.

According to reports, his mother told him that when he explores the world in the future, he can bring Mummy’s things along.

Sadly, due to an illness, Tzou’s mother passed away last year.

However, the 8-year-old never let go of the promise he made to his mother and was determined to fulfil it.

As they prepared for the hike, his father would constantly motivate him. He would tell his son that the Jade Mountain is the highest point in Taiwan which means he would be closer to his mother.

When they reached the peak, the boy exclaimed "Mummy! We've reached the top, I carried you to the peak of Jade Mountain!"

Through determination and willpower, Tzou powered through several obstacles, from dizziness to breathlessness, to nausea, he powered through all of them.

We’re touched by Tzou’s journey and determination to fulfil a pact he made with his mother.
