Despite their huge age difference, Milind Soman and Ankita Konwar never fail to surprise us as a couple.

The adventurous duo recently shared pictures from their trek to Uhuru, Mt Kilimanjaro, one of Africa's highest peaks.

"It was a climb alright! Celebrated my 28th birthday by climbing the highest mountain in Africa #kilimanjaro and summiting the highest peak at 19341 feet #uhurupeak!! And by doing so, became the first #assamese woman to have done it. It did require a lot of courage, patience, and resistance to reach the top but it was all worth it," Ankita wrote while sharing pictures.

'What an amazingly beautiful 28th birthday for my #superwife @ankita_earthy and what a way to begin your 29th year, reaching #Uhuru peak, at 19,341ft, the highest point of Mt #kilimanjaro, the roof of Africa !!! And, I think, the first Assamese woman to do so so proud of you sweetheart. You will inspire many more ! I wish you always greater heights, greater love, greater happiness,' Milind wrote on Instagram.

Ankita also thanked Milind for inspiring and supporting her through the journey.

"Life offers so much to teach us, we just have to open our hearts to learn. Kilimanjaro you have been extremely kind. Thank you for a beautiful birthday Milind Soman! Couldn't have done this without your support. Thank you for being with me through the montane forests to moorlands to towering alpine deserts to everything. May we learn more and grow more together. Here's to another year of life. P.S thank you, everyone, for your wonderful warm wishes on my birthday and sorry I couldn't reply, as I was in the mountains. Wish you all LOADS OF LOVE," Ankita added.
