Munmun apparently suffered a panic attack due to her claustrophobia. As soon as she reached the darkness of the mountains, her claustrophobia hit, and the actress suffered a panic attack after which she was rescued down by the trek team members. The actress shared the information on her Instagram handle about that incident.

While narrating the incident, Munmun wrote a long post which read, "With deep regrets, I have to declare here that I had to end my climb of Mount Kilimanjaro after the day two 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. 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," part of her caption read.
