An uncle of mine in Mangalore lives in a valley and he climbs up and down the hill everyday to meet people and to shop. The valley is at the edge of the forest and he has been doing it for 40 years. He is hale and healthy at the age of 80. I tried once and I was dead tired. Doing such tough exercises, I was told increases stamina. Chinese teach this to children especially when they are selected for sportive events.

Your uncle is really hale and healthy at his age. My father is 81, but he lives in the city. Therefore he loves to get up very early like 4:00 in the morning and goes to exercise in the city park. After dinner he likes to go out for a walk around the old city wall on the river bank with my mother for at least an hour. I am happy that they have a very good habit of doing exercise to stay healthy. I seldom climb mountains, but I love bikeriding around the mountain for fresh air, which makes me feel so good. Life is in motion. I think that I need to exercise more. Be healthy, ssh.

Very nice to know about healthy habits of your parents. Instead of bike riding if you could go for 3 km walk or jogging, it is more beneficial and you will get fresh air here too. Thanks for your very interesting response.

You are welcome, ssh123. I have to say that I am very lazy. If I have time, I love to stay with laptop to check emails from my friends. I cannot imagine how life can be without checking emails from my friends. Now what I look forward to hearing from is the emails from mylot to my yahoo email with keen interest. I make it a rule in my daily activity now. I also think that it is a kind of brainstorming exercise to respond to my friends' discussions on mylot to make my mind active in thinking without letting it getting dull so soon. lol

I like hiking and whenever we go to Mt.Abu a Hill station we walk down 5 Km to see a waterfall and then climb back every day. It is a small waterfall but falling water is always a refreshing sight.

Dear SSH, Mountaineering, trekking and such adventurous activities develop mostly from the sociological status of an individual and i must give some credit to instinct as well. I salute your uncle who shows such a strength, both within and without. As you have suggested these activities should be made compulsive right from childhood. this only not only will build our inner character but also will help us build our stamina. As for me, i am a very shelled, brooding person dissected by confusion, heartbreaks and a major failed relationship. Naturally, i am not that adventurous. i hardly take chances in fear of losing the little i have. but i must get out of it. sooner the better. Thank you.

I come from a region, where there are hills and valleys. A decade ago there were no bus or vehicle facility to remote areas situated beyond hills and one has to climb. I too had climbed not regularly. I am scared of mountaineering.
