About Fireflies:

Fireflies or lightning bugs are structured with specialized cells in their abdomen which emit light. This process is called bioluminescence and is shared by many other organisms, mostly sea-living or marine organisms. Pre-monsoon climate is the ideal period for fireflies and glow-worms for mating, they light up to attract their mate. Hundreds of fireflies gather together on a tree displaying their bio-luminescent lights in the dark nights.


Imagine a thousand twinkling lights in the forest. Enchanting right? Now imagine witnessing this phenomenon live. One of the most brilliant spectacles put on by Mother Nature at Prabalmachi, before the onset of the monsoon. This is, of course, the annual mating congregation of fireflies who descend upon this plateau to start a wonderful beginning. Their bioluminescence creates magical patterns in the dark and makes you dream with eyes open.

But the magic doesn't end there. Indulge in setting up your tents, make your own barbecue as you sing under the moonlight and the starlit sky around bonfires while relishing in locally cooked food and experiencing the warm hospitality of the locals of Prabalmachi. In the morning, descend with memories or challenge yourself for an adventure as you can hike up the thrilling Kalavantin Durg or the mighty Prabalgad.
