Mandy Moore just showed her fans how fierce she could get! The beautiful actress showed off her inner macho talent by reaching Mount Everest Base Camp, and now she can tick it off her bucket list.


Although many have died going on this journey, Moore and her friends, Ashley Streicher and Chase Weideman, with the help of guide Melissa Arnot Reid and Eddie Bauer embarked on the trip which took them one week to complete.


Mandy Moore who seemed filled with an immense joy that could probably only be understood by a Mount Everest climber like her self; took to Instagram to share her experience with her fans and pay homage to those who have died walking the same trails that she and her friends did.

Speaking about their experience climbing Mount Everest, Moore said,

"There is so much magic in these mountains. They represent adventure in the grandest form and in a language all their own."


But of course, getting there was not an all "rosy" experience. Expressing the setbacks that were faced, the "This is Us" actress wrote,

"Traversing this terrain has its challenges. Breathing at altitude, for instance, is not easy. One of the greatest gifts/lessons that Melissa simultaneously bestowed on us during this trek was the fine art of pressure breathing. It makes all the difference as you climb higher. It’s essentially a big inhale, and a sharp, forceful exhale, like you’re blowing out a candle across the room, to open up your lungs, allowing you to use more oxygen, etc... Besides hydration and staying nourished, breathing is THE vital key in the fight against altitude sickness."


It sounds like it was somewhat of an adventure. The actress also praised her guide, Melissa Arnot Reid, who according to Moore, was "the first American Woman to ascend and descend Everest without oxygen."

Mount Everest has however been exceptionally more dangerous this year. According to Nepalese officials, an eleventh person — American lawyer Christopher Kulish — was found dead this Spring while attempting to climb to Everest’s summit — an additional 12,000 ft. above the base camp where Moore and her friends stopped their hike.


This is due to many people trying to climb Everest during the few days of good weather thereby causing overcrowding. Also, according to the "New York Times," inexperienced climbers and the government of Nepal issuing a record number of permits, 381, in an effort to market the climb to people willing to pay for the experience is also adding to the problem.

Regardless of all the cons associated with climbing this year, Moore and her friends made it. Way to go girl!
