Mandy Moore and fiancé Taylor Goldsmith of Dawes are getting ready for their wedding, and they chose to face a huge challenge before walking down the aisle: They climbed one of the tallest mountains on earth together.

Moore partnered with Eddie Bauer to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, which, at 19,341 feet, is the highest peak in Africa and a journey that typically takes a week to reach the summit. The This Is Us star shared that she's "dreamed the dream of climbing Mount Kilimanjaro since the age of 18," and hit the trails with Goldsmith and a group of her best friends to check off the the top item on her bucket list.

Justin Bieber & Selena Gomez Aren't On a Break Because of Her Mom: 'They Have Their Own Issues'

  Justin Bieber & Selena Gomez Aren't On a Break Because of Her Mom: 'They Have Their Own Issues' Selena Gomez‘s mom Mandy Teefey has been clear she doesn’t approve of her daughter getting back together with ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber, but that’s not why the duo are taking a breather. “They’re not on a break because of her relationship with her mom. They have their own issues and are always on and off,” says a source about the couple, who first dated in 2010. “She wouldn’t base her relationship off of what her mom thinks.” In an interview earlier this year, Teefey admitted she was “not happy” about the rekindled romance, but added that “Selena can live her life however she wants as long as she is happy, safe and healthy.” Though the “Sorry” singer wasn’t photographed spending his 24th birthday on March 1 (he stepped out for a go-kart excursion followed by dinner at Mastro’s) with Gomez, the source says the couple — who never officially defined their relationship since reuniting in the fall — celebrated together earlier in the day. “They’ve been having disagreements, but it wouldn’t be surprising if they’re back together in a week,” adds the source. In late December, an insider told PEOPLE exclusively the “Wolves” singer and her mom Mandy Teefey were estranged, but that it wasn’t just because of Bieber. “Mandy and Selena have had their ups and downs before. This isn’t the first time,” said the insider.

Between her stories and a number of photos, Moore recounted the climb on Instagram, from the lead-up to the most intense parts of the hike to the freezing temperatures they approached near the summit.

"Kilimanjaro demands a lot from those who traverse her trails," she wrote on Instagram. "You have no choice but to show up. And we did."

Check out her photos of the trek below.

I have dreamed the dream of climbing Mt Kilimanjaro since the age of 18. Thanks to @eddiebauer, my partner in this adventure, this past week saw #1 on my bucket list come to fruition and I lived out one of the most rewarding and challenging experiences of my life with a few of my best friends. There was no reception on the mountain so I’m going to dole out some pics of our trip over the next few days. Stay tuned-it’s worth it! #liveyouradventure #ebcontributer #whyihike #sponsered

On the night of our ascent to the summit, we woke up at 11pm (after a few hours of napping) to enjoy a couple of nervous minutes together with a cup of coffee before it was time to gear up in my our warmest layers and start the nearly 8 hour trek to highest point in Africa- 19,341 ft. In total darkness, we took it pole pole (slow slow) and trudged through rain, sleet and snow, where seemingly everything on our person managed to freeze (water bottles, backpacks, our eyelashes, hair, fingers, toes, etc...) Oddly, I’ve never felt more determined to tackle such a physical challenge before and yet the combined elements of exhaustion and extremely cold weather made it much trickier than any of us were prepared for. All of that aside, ultimately reaching the threshold of the true summit was more emotional and overwhelming than I had thought possible. Kilimanjaro demands a lot from those who traverse her trails. You have no choice but to show up. And we did. There’s nothing more empowering than realizing that we are all capable of so much more than we give ourselves credit for. #whyihike #liveyouradventure #sponsored
