Camping Under the Dark Sky with Glowing Fireflies !!
About Fireflies Festival at Bhandardara :
Fireflies are basically insects which display the bio-luminescence character!! They actually throw out fluorescent green light from the body to attract their mate. This phenomenon of natural lighting is so mesmerizing that at times one can experience thousands of fireflies flashing the light which is one of the best natural sights to behold.
Best suited for groups, solo campers, corporates, couples, families and pets.
