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.

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 Rajmachi:-
Rajmachi Fort is one of the many historical forts in the rugged hills of Sahyadri mountains (Western Ghats). It consists of two twin fortresses Shriwardhan Ballekilla and Manaranjan Balekilla, with a wide machi (plateau) surrounding the two Balekillas. Udhewadi is a small village situated on the machi, at the southern foot of Manaranjan Balekilla of Rajmachi Fort.
