Well, leave it on us then. Trek India has got wonderful plans for you to enjoy another fun-filled weekend with fireflies, homestay, and authentic home-cooked food.

About 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.

About Prabalmachi:-

Prabalmachi is situated between Matheran and Panvel in Raigad District in Maharashtra, India. A rustic village, the base of Fort Prabalgad and Kalavantin, is filled with greenery and is away from hustle and bustle of the city. The height of the Prabalmachi village is 390 meters above sea level. The Prabalgad Fort stands at an elevation of 2,300 feet in the Western Ghats.
