25-26th May 2019 01st -02nd June 2019 08-09th June 2019 15-16th June 2019
Well, leave it on us then. Trek India has got wonderful plans for you to enjoy another fun-filled weekend with fireflies, homestay/tents stay and authentic home-cooked food.
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.
Kothaligad is a Fort with a height of 3100 ft above sea LEVEL. It is also known as the Fort of Peth because of its vicinity to Peth village at its base. There are a small temple and large cave at the base and a chimney like a tunnel to the top of the fort. This pinnacle is carved from inside forming a staircase reaching the top.
