All About It
  • 2 Days  1 Nights 
  • For 5+ years

Nestled in the serene Western Ghats of Maharashtra, Bhandardara is a picturesque location. Among its many natural attractions, the fireflies season stands out as a unique and magical experience. Every year, during the pre-monsoon season, this tranquil location transforms into a luminous paradise, attracting nature enthusiasts and adventure seekers alike.

About Fireflies:

Fireflies or lightning bugs make light within their bodies. This process is called bioluminescence. Fireflies light up to attract a mate. This breath-taking show put on by nature resembles a psychedelic combination of stars falling and fireworks exploding It is an immersive experience you will never forget.

The fireflies do not always flash in unison. They may flash in waves across hillsides, and at other times will flash randomly. Synchrony occurs in short bursts that end with abrupt periods of darkness.

Come spend your weekend under the starry surroundings

Please Note:

  • Bioluminescence by Fireflies is a natural phenomenon. The trip dates have been planned as per the mating season of fireflies i.e pre-monsoon during which we witness this phenomenon. We may or may not get to witness it. Wandering Souls won’t be held responsible for low or no sightings.

Trekking with wandering souls was a safe and good experience. The team leads were genuinely caring and made sure of everyone's safety despite having a large group.The trek was well designed and it also had an introduction session which served as an icebreaker and made the batch more friendly towards eachother. The crowd was decent and blending, you can meet and make new friends. It was my first time trekking with a group and I would join them soon 💪🏽👍🏽
