REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, JAKARTA -- Penyanyi sekaligus aktris Mandy Moore saat ini tengah absen syuting drama televisi, This Is Us. Rupanya, ia tidak memilih berleha-leha saat jeda dari rutinitasnya tersebut.

Moore malah memilih aktivitas yang memacu adrenalin, yakni mendaki base camp Everest, Nepal. Ia berencana melakukan pendakian dipimpin oleh Melissa Arnot, seorang pemandu Eddie Bauer Alpine yang menjadi sahabat barunya.

Dikutip dari laman People, Selasa (14/5), pendakian memakan waktu hingga sembilan hari perjalanan. Moore pun menceritakan pengalaman yang ia sebut seperti keluar dari zona nyamannya itu.

"Saya sangat bersemangat. Pendakian itu tidak membuatku takut. Menyegarkan! Saat-saat ketika Anda mendorong diri Anda keluar dari zona nyaman, rasanya begitu memuaskan dan bernilai," ujar aktris berusia 35 tahun itu.

While we only scratched the surface and saw a tiny sliver of this unimaginably breathtaking country, I can emphatically say that we were blown away and are already planning our next trip to New Zealand. Our excursion was two-fold: equal parts relaxation and adventure. It was also meant as a pre-cursor, warm up of sorts for our trek to Everest Base Camp in a few weeks. I didn’t exactly arrive with any set expectations but I sure did come away surprised at the breadth of the trip. My biggest takeaway? Lean into the discomfort. It’s temporary and an essential ingredient to growth. Not everything has to be a thrill-a-minute. It’s all a part of it! We forded rivers. We slipped and fell in bottomless holes of mud. We camped on a freezing riverbed with sand flies biting the crap out of us. We also laughed more than ever, came up with a million inside jokes, took nature pees at every possible moment, sang songs, rafted down a river, summited an alpine peak, climbed many, many miles- including free range trekking down 3k feet...and so much more! There’s nothing quite like the bond that strengthens when traveling with friends. Seeing them surprised at their own perseverance and capabilities is a total joy. Most importantly, you don’t need an exotic destination (although- much gratitude in this case), a major bucket list goal to aim towards or even the social aspect of hiking with friends. Speaking from experience, the enjoyment that we all can derive -solo- in the every day hikes, are often the ones that carry the real weight and when the real work is done. #whyihike #eddiebauerpartner

Moore mengakuji jika sebenarnya dirinya punya obsesi memanjat gunung sejak lama. Akan tetapi baru belakangan ini harapannya terealisasi, dimulai dari pendakian ke Gunung Kilimanjaro pada tahun lalu.

"Perjalanan itu benar-benar memperkuat saya. Saya menemukan jiwa pendaki dalam diri saya," tuturnya.

Bulan lalu, Moore juga melakukan pendakian di Selandia Baru dengan pemandu yang sama, Arnot. Moore dinilai Arnot cukup kooperatif selama perjalanan.

"Dia memiliki gairah untuk alam bebas dan benar-benar mendorong dirinya sendiri. Dan dia sangat terbuka dan murah hati. Dia orang yang sangat menyenangkan untuk bepergian," kata Arnot.

Suami Moore, rocker Taylor Goldsmith, juga turut serta dalam pendakian di Selandia Baru tersebut. Moore pun mengakui pria yang mempersuntingnya setahun lalu itu lebih dari tangguh untuk mendaki gunung.
