Details

As we await the upcoming monsoon season first showers we welcome the season of fireflies. Western Ghats jungles will soon twinkle with a small light, this period is known as the mating season for fireflies. Enjoy Firefly camping at Rajmachi Village near Lonavala. Fireflies at night cover the forest with small twinkling lights. 

Who are these beautiful Fireflies?

Fireflies or lightning bugs make light within their bodies. This process is called bioluminescence and is shared by many other organisms, mostly sea-living or marine organisms. Fireflies light up to attract a mate. To do this, the fireflies contain specialized cells in their abdomen that helps to create light.

About Rajmachi Firefly Festival?

Pre-monsoon during May and June months you can spot thousands of fireflies around Mumbai and Pune. Rajmachi Fort Trek and Camping is the best location in Maharashtra to spot fireflies. We will be trekking till the base village of Rajmachi Fort total trek distance 8 km one way. We can spot fireflies after sunset around the Udhewadi village. Fireflies are called Kajawa in Marathi.
