    Actress Munmun Dutta, who’s famous for playing the role of Babita Iyer in the popular television show Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah, was rescued from Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania in East Africa after she suffered a panic attack while trekking. Munmun shared her life-threatening experience through an Instagram post and also shared some pictures from her expedition.

    The actress wrote:

    With deep regrets I have to declare here that I had to end my climb of Mount Kilimanjaro after the day 2 climb due to severe Claustrophobia 2 nights in a row.

    I was one of the strongest person in the group – physically and mentally both. And I knew I would reach the peak sooner than expected.

    But you can never be prepared for everything. And in my case it is my severe case of Claustrophobia which I didn’t count before the climb. But the mountain taught me.

    The stark darkness on the mountain gave me severe claustrophobia and I had my heart palpitating so fast that I almost fainted last night outside my tent.

    And that’s when I decided to pull out of the expedition because I was dreading the darkness every day during sunset.

    Couldn’t thank the team of @kiliwarriors enough for saving me from this near death experience of mine. The porters , the guides everyone helped me pack my bags, walk with me 1 hour in total darkness in 5 degrees cold to take me to a place where the car could come and pick me up and bring me down the mountain.

    This experience has taught me so much and I feel different as a person today.

    I am thankful and proud of myself for scaling 12,000 feet above sea level without any difficulties.

    I will put my pictures from the #expedition in the next few days and share my experience with you.

    Some day when I am ready and fully prepared to deal with my claustrophobia, I will come back to KILIMANJARO ❤️ and not without with the team of @kiliwarriors .
