Fireflies or lightning bugs are structured with specialized cells in their abdomen which emit light. This process is called bio luminescence 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.

    For Prabhalmachi and Kalavantin Trek (20-21 January, 2018)..This was my 2nd trek and 1st one of my other friends..The Organizers are very hospitable and friendly.. Right from beginning, they made sure all of us didn't face any problem.. They arranged very delicious food for us..The camping facility too was up to the mark.. Throughout the trek, they made sure none of the participants were ignored plus provided adequate safety measures.. I'd recommend everyone to select Mumbai Trekizens for all their upcoming treks
