If you want to see the dazzling fireflies in the dark, then come to Matheran. This trek is most spectacular in weeks preceding the monsoon when tiny insects come out of a long slumber for mating season. Fireflies exhibit bioluminescence, a phenomenon which makes them glow in the dark to attract a mate.


Brief Itinerary:


21:00 - Assemble at Panvel Station and later move to the base village

22:30 - Reach base village. Have Introduction and dinner



00:00 - Start trekking and enjoy spotting the fireflies all along the way
