  •     A. Fireflies season is a special time of the year where you can witness hundreds and thousands of fireflies at a time. People rush to see this magnificent light show by nature which happens during the Monsoon arrival. We suggest you to book your slots as soon possible so that you are one of the few lucky folks who would be witnessing this massive light show by nature. NOTE: We will not be able to guarantee you any kind of availability in the last minute as there are very limited slots in each batch. Thanks, EH
