About Trek:
There are many wonders in the animal world, but few offer such enchantment as that of a summer evening with the twinkle of fireflies. It's a wonderful experience, like handfuls of Lilliputian stars tossed from the sky, falling to flit and hover among the grass.

The light produced by the firefly is the most efficient light ever made. Each species has a specific pattern of light flashing, and males use this pattern to let the ladies of the same species know that they would be a fine match for one another. When a female notices a suitable suitor, she replies with her own species-specific flash.

To enjoy this enchanting experience, we will be taking you to Siddhagad Fort in Murbad range. This is old age hill fort established by Shilahaar royal family in the 9th century. This hill fort had the tallest height to climb in all forts in Maharashtra.
We all can only dream to live somewhere in the galaxy but Siddhagad Wadi (Base village of Siddhagad) is really experiencing the same. A village of about 20-25 small huts/houses; upon the height of approx. 2000 ft.; no tar road, not even road for a bullock cart. Villagers have to walk in dense jungle for 3 hrs approx..
