Travel to a remote village in countryside Maharashtra for a special trek to spot small, bioluminiscent fireflies. Set in a scenic destination in the folds of the Sahyadri hills, this fireflies trek takes you for a short village walk to explore the rural community and lush greenery. On the walk, you'll spot fluttering fireflies as they fly from tree tops to shrubs as tiny dots of glowing bright lights. After a night of merry fun with your fellow travellers, you'll spend the night in the village and wake up to a gorgeous sunrise over the mountains.
Purushwadi is an idyllic village in the Western Ghats, accessible via a 6-hr drive from Mumbai. Located very close to Nasik, this village hosts a wealth of monsoon-inspired greenery from the flowing rivers of Kurkundi and Mula. This attracts hundreds of small glow-in-the-dark fireflies that dot the landscape in the evening dusk. Purushwadi village is located on the outskirts of the Kalsubai Harishchandragad Wildlife Sancutary, a short distance from the Bhandardara Dam.
You'll spend the night either in alpine tents, pitched under a starry sky, or at a rural home-stay in the Purushwadi village.
