About Night Trek :
Rajmachi Fireflies Night Trek is counted as one of the most exciting and endurance testing treks.
This route at night is quite chilly going throughout the thick forest. You can spot on the way Nightjars, Sambhars, Palm Civet, Hares, etc. it is truly exciting. You get to see streams, If you are walking near dusk or dawn time then you can see a lot of fireflies twinkling around you. Overall Rajmachi night trek experience is unique and unforgettable. When you wake up at the campsite the view is quite amazing.
About Rajmachi :
Rajmachi Fort is one of the many historical forts in the rugged hills of Sahyadri Mountains (Western Ghats). It consists of two twin fortresses Shriwardhan Ballekilla and Manaranjan Balekilla, with a wide machi (plateau) surrounding the two Balekillas. Udhewadi is a small village of about 22 houses situated on the machi, at the southern foot of
Manaranjan Balekilla of Rajmachi Fort.
About Fireflies :
Initial Monsoon climate is the ideal period for fireflies and glow-worms for mating and in pursuit of the mate, hundreds of fireflies gather together on a tree displaying their bio-luminescent lights in the dark nights. Dense forests are just the perfect place for these twinkling creatures for this kind of ritual and this is the exact time when we can experience synchronous twinkling of hundreds of fireflies one of the most beautiful phenomena in nature. Experience doesn't need any explanation its phenomenon and visuals leave you with moments to cherish for a lifetime.
