Washington, Mar 9 (ANI): British singers Cheryl Cole and Gary Barlow have finally reached the top of Mount Kilimanjaro, and are celebrating the success of their climb for charity.

The two were joined by Coles band mate Kimberley Walsh and Boyzone’’s Ronan Keating in their trek, which started on February 27 in aid of British organisation Comic Relief.

They touched the 19,000-foot (5,890 metre) peak in Africa on March 7, and for Cole, 25, it was a huge success.

It has been the most mentally and physically challenging experience of my life. Nothing could have prepared me for it, Contactmusic quoted her as saying.

Im so proud of all of us for making it to the top. And seeing life here first hand is one of my most rewarding experiences too, she added.

The mammoth climb has so far netted the charity 1.96 million dollars. (ANI)
