Fireflies or lightning bugs are structured with specialized cells in their abdomen which emit light. This process is called bioluminescence and is shared by many other organisms, mostly sea-living or marine organisms. Pre-monsoon climate is the ideal period for fireflies and glow-worms for mating, they light up to attract their mate. Hundreds of fireflies gather together on a tree displaying their bio-luminescent lights in the dark nights.
Imagine a thousand twinkling lights in the forest. Enchanting right? Now imagine witnessing this phenomenon live. One of the most brilliant spectacles put on by Mother Nature at Prabalmachi, before the onset of the monsoon. This is, of course, the annual mating congregation of fireflies who descend upon this plateau to start a wonderful beginning. Their bioluminescence creates magical patterns in the dark and makes you dream with eyes open.
But the magic doesn’t end there. Indulge in setting up your tents, make your own barbecue as you sing under the moonlight and the starlit sky around bonfires while relishing in locally cooked food and experiencing the warm hospitality of the locals of Prabalmachi. In the morning, descend with memories or challenge yourself for an adventure as you can hike up the thrilling Kalavantin Durg or the mighty Prabalgad.
So, what are you waiting for? Just put on your trekking shoes, take your camera, and begin the journey with Bhatakna.

Group of Youngsters came together and started Bhatakna.com with a motive to make people around part of their Journey, where everyone asked them “kidhar jaa rahe ho Bhatakne”? “Kidhar gaya tha Bhatakne? ” ” Bhatakna accha lagta hai kya”? As a youngster a typical answer hit their mind “Tujhe kya karna hai? OR else “Tu bhi chal mere sath Bhatakne, fir samjega Bhatakna Kitna jaroori hai” and here The Journey of a Bhatkanti began.
Keeping this in mind we started to organize Travelling Events to help Travellers, make their trip Excellent and Meaningful.

We are thankful to this company for organising significant trek for kalsubai this place is magnificent. Our sherpa (Smit) and (Kapil) was very interactive , entertaining , magnanimous and knowledgeable of history. I will not hesitate to recommend this company to my colleagues , family and friends. Thank you
The best trek I’ve ever gone to. I’ve travelled with many other tours but they are the best. From travelling to climbing, I was never bored. The trek leader is so interactive that you won’t feel lonely even if you go solo. They are punctual about their time and also they provide all the necessary services as per our needs. Enjoyed a lot during this trek and hoping to go on the same with this tours and travels.
