Munmun Dutta, who plays Jethalal’s crush, Babita ji in ‘Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah’, is on a trek to Mt. Kilimanjaro.

She became a popular face in public with her portrayal of Babitaji in Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah. She took up the challenge of climbing the difficult Mt. Kilimanjaro this month and put the best of her abilities to it.

Munmun, who is an avid traveler, traveled across East Africa and explored Mt. Kilimanjaro too. But two days into her trek to the mountain and this Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah actress had to pull out. The reason that she had to quit the adventure mid-way is claustrophobia.

She had a panic attack at mountain top and had to be brought down from there. Despite all this, she has no regrets and has kept fond memories of the trip with her. Instagramming this experience of hers with her fans, she made herself a promise to make a repeat attempt in the future.

Remembering her moments, Munmun mentioned,

“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 people 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 was grateful about the experience as she shared,

“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.”
