The “this is us” actress Mandy Moore completed her trek into Mount Everest’s base camp. She shared photos along with a lengthy post about the “challenging” yet “game-changing” hike with her comrades.
CROSSING HURDLES WITH VICTORY
We all know that it is not an easy task. Hydration and staying nourished is the necessity for survival. Mandy herself explained that breathing is the vital key in the fight against altitude sickness. She wrote: “it’s also a major takeaway that I will be employing back to the real world” & missing every single thing. She added that being able to share laughs, toilet paper, snacks, skincare, and silly songs, all this played a part in making this trip remarkable.
DEADLIEST CLIMBING YEAR:
Mandy Moore scales Mount Everest during the deadliest climbing year in decades. Over the weekend, the New York Times published a harrowing account of the current climbing conditions at Mount Everest. Already this season 11 people have lost their lives. Experts have pointed out that a record number of permits granted by Nepal and inexperience of climbers are the two main reasons for the rising number of deaths.
“MAGIC IN THE MOUNTAINS”
She wrote on her Instagram post: “There is so much magic in those mountains.” “They represent an adventure in their language.” “It’s impossible to be lucky enough to arrive at these peaks and climb your inner Everest. “The wave of emotion, respect, & appreciation washed over us as we took in the prayer flags and yellow domed tents of base camp.” She added: “I think I am slowly learning that I feel most like me when I’m outdoors.” It is ultimately, refreshing.
They made it up to Everest’s south side base camp. It is 5364 meters high somewhere in Nepal. The excursion was part of an Everest viewing trek with Melissa Reid as her group’s guide. She’s the first American woman to ascend & descend Everest without oxygen. Mandy experienced physical discomfort, personal challenge, & organic spiritual growth in those ten days.
