About Fireflies

About Fireflies

Fireflies: Fireflies belong to the family of beetles, and not flies as they are commonly mistaken for. These nocturnal winged beetles use bioluminescence, a chemical reaction when oxygen combines with luciferin, which is present in the lower abdomen of the insect to produce light. All fireflies glow as larvae. Bioluminescence serves a different function in the larvae than in adults. It appears to be a warning signal to predators, for, the larvae contain chemicals that are either distasteful or toxic.

 The adult male beetles use light to primarily attract their mates. The interested female flashes back from her lower perch and the male flit overhead. What a romantic way of courting! The first few showers of monsoon are the best time to witness the fireflies since this is the time best fit for fireflies to start darting around. Fireflies cannot tolerate heavy raindrops and die. So, make sure you get to witness these lightning bugs with us.

 Camping at Bhandardara is a unique camping experience that you may have never experienced till now. Surrounded by the Turquoise pristine water, it will be the best experience of camping you ever had. Riverside camping in Bhandardara is one of the best weekend getaways from Mumbai, Pune & Nasik with a punch of thrill & adventure.

 Bhandardara is always beautiful with its tranquil serenity and unspoiled nature. But during monsoon and post-monsoon period, it's natural beauty increases manyfold with numerous small & medium seasonal waterfalls and glowing greenery. During monsoon, it is difficult to arrange for camping in Bhandardara but the post-monsoon period is perfect as heavy monsoon is subdued and natural beauty reaches the peak. Bhandardara stargazing is a famous activity mostly carried out by campers who visit our site. The camping has been specifically designed for a beautiful summer sky gazing and relaxing.

 Your camps will be set up beside the lakeside and you will enjoy the sunset while swift cool breeze will gently touch your body. As the night approaches the weather becomes cooler and very pleasant. We will arrange bonfire and BBQ for you in the evening and also offer you unlimited Starters!!. It will surely be a memorable experience for you. And the showstopper, Stargazing in Bhandardara under the open sky, can take you to a different world altogether ( We will provide you with Binoculars and Telescopes for Stargazing). Fishing and Swimming the lake is a different experience altogether.
