  • Trip introduction

    This special fireflies trek to Kurungwadi lets you spend a magical evening in the company of bioluminescent fireflies in countryside Maharashtra. From a lakeside campsite in the Sahyadri range, you'll go for a short walk to explore the surrounding villages. 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 campers, you'll spend the night in tents and wake up to a gorgeous sunrise over the mountains.

    Destination

    Kurungwadi is a small village enclosed in the dense forests of the Sahyadri hills. The village is accessible via a short 1-hr drive from the Kasara railway station. In the monsoon, the entire landscape surrounding the village blooms with lush greenery, attracting hundreds of small glow-in-the-dark fireflies. Kurungwadi is also located at the base of several hill forts, including the sister forts of Alang, Madan, Kulang as well as the tall Kalsubai peak.

    Your campsite is located on the banks of the Kurungwadi Lake, a man-made lake created by the Bhavli Dam on the Darna River.
