Live the life at the edge of cliff..4000ft altitude...Misty clouds....Billions of twinkling stars...Fireflies....Indrawajra...Campfire...Stories & many more at Harishchandragad Paradise of trekkers..
In this pre-monsoon period, get ready to witness a phenomenon which will just put you in awe of nature. We are talking about the tiny little twinkling creatures, who come out in millions at night in a breathtaking phenomenon. Fireflies or lightning bugs make light within their bodies. This process is called bioluminescence and is shared by many other organisms, mostly sea-living or marine organisms. Ever imagined what it would be like to watch a million twinkling stars in the open sky above your head? Add a dash of a spectacular light show orchestrated by the humble fireflies.
Imagine yourself on the ridge in above of misty cloud and your shadow on the clouds hallowed by rainbow rings that's the indravajra...
The natural phenomenon appears when a low sun is behind a climber who is looking downwards into the misty cloud from a ridge. It is produced, when light refracts from water droplets in the cloud like a rainbow, Harishchandragad is one of the few places in the world where you could be lucky to see this broken spectre called Indravajra in the pre-monsoon period.
