All of us at Rimo Expeditions were greatly saddened to hear that Dr. Paul Roberts passed away earlier this month on 2 May 2014 at his home in Beaconsfield, England.
Dr. Roberts, a respected physician, was a dear friend of Rimo Expeditions and he and a group of his friends held a very special place in our hearts as our very first clients on our very first trek to Mt. Mera in Nepal back in November 1991.
Mt. Mera wasn’t Dr. Robert’s only interaction with Rimo.
Over the years his passion for trekking the Himalaya never stopped and he traveled with us to other parts of the Himalaya in to Nepal, Sikkim, Bhutan.
Doctor Roberts also introduced us to several of his friends who like him travelled with us all over the Himalaya. Many of his companions were from The Fell and Rock Climbing Club of the English Lake District of which he was an active member.
We kept in touch with Dr. Roberts over the years and he with as, even as his health deteriorated and prevented him from taking the treks he so greatly enjoyed.
In November 2010 Motup and Yangdu visited Dr. Roberts at his home in Beaconsfield when they spent a wonderful day going through pictures and reminiscing about the treks.
Dr Roberts, we will always remember you fondly.
Rest in peace.
