Surrounded by the lush mountains of Sahyadri ranges, Arthur lake is a quaint little pool that gets its water from the Pravara river. It is a serene place to unwind and soak in the natural beauty

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.
