Best Fireflies Treks
Rajmachi, Bhandardara, Sandhan Valley and Kothaligad are some of the famous trekking spots that trekkers get to spot fireflies during the pre-monsoons. Fireflies are mostly attracted to the humid, marshy air and soil. So the pre-monsoons set the perfect conditions for the fireflies to mate and breed during this season.

At the Bhandardara Fireflies Festival, the campers are allowed to kick back with beer and enjoy the night as it does not involve trekking. This could be a perfect way of enjoying nature if you are not into trekking or adventure, but still be able to get enchanted at the Fireflies Festival.

However, it is also required that the trekkers and campers understand the need to leave the nature and the surroundings undisturbed, as much as possible.
