The leggy lass has explored more than 30 countries and was on a wander lust at the sixth continent when due to a severe claustrophobic and panic attack in the pitch darkness she had to be brought down from the Mountains. 

Munmunn Dutta has been preparing for this trek for a long time. Reaching out to her 1.4 million Instagram followers, she has shared on day 2 of her climb and wrote: “Excited and elated to have reached the 2nd camp and we had a clear view of the peak of Kilimanjaro. It looked so close yet so far away…”

The moment she started her Trip, Munmun informed her fans on Instagram and wrote: “A super relaxing day in Arusha, Tanzania today. Rejuvenating and resting it out before we start with our big climb tomorrow.”

She wrote a lengthy post on Instagram revealing why she had to end her trek in the midway. Here’s what she 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.”

Munmun, who is an early riser and very dedicated about leading a fit lifestyle, unfortunately, had to stop the expedition midway. With a heavy heart, she wrote, “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…” 

Wishing to come back again, the daily soap actress concluded her post saying, "Some day when I am ready and fully prepared to deal with my claustrophobia, I will come back to KILIMANJARO

This was DAY 1 of the climb. 🏔. . . 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 . . #Tanzania #Kilimanjaro #travel #expedition #whyihike
