Join Avantura Escapades on a trip to Jawhar - a trip dedicated to having fun chasing Fireflies.

While chasing and catching fireflies might be a common childhood activity in many parts of the country, it is not an activity we grow up within the cities. We have so few fireflies that many people have never seen them and only know about them through cartoons and books. 

Fireflies are soft-bodied beetles that get their name from their conspicuous use of bioluminescence during twilight to attract mates or prey. Fireflies produce a "cold light", with no infrared or ultraviolet frequencies. Fireflies are found in temperate and tropical climates.


  • Twinkling Fireflies are the highlight of this journey
  • A unique experience combining adventure and convenience of being close to Mumbai/Thane/Nashik
  • Isolated camping zone with security
